In Malaysia, oppressive policies marginalise migrant workers

22 February 2022
Malaysia’s capital city is a place of contrasts and diversity: soaring skyscrapers alongside ramshackle tin dwellings, cold monsoon rains just weeks before muggy heat. But perhaps the most marked contrast is that of class and access – a difference that became more pronounced and noticeable during the COVID-19 pandemic and its accompanying lockdowns. At one…

AFTER revelations that schools were still carrying out period “spot checks”, the Education Ministry’s release of a circular banning the practice is a welcome, if slightly belated response.  While it is a positive move that period checks are now…

Activism, journalism are key to nation-building

Elites alone can’t solve Myanmar’s turmoil

12 July 2021
JULY 12 — ”Myanmar protest.” “Myanmar military coup.” “Is it safe in Myanmar?” These are just some of the options that pop up when one searches online Asean’s most troubled member state and they are reflective of the questions many have surrounding the South-east Asian nation and its unfolding political and civil society developments. Activists and human rights defenders have increasingly…
