REFSA’s Communications Director, Iskandar Fareez spoke to Hezril Asyraaf on BFM – Live & Learn on The Bigger Picture podcast on ways to achieve racial unity and why it is important for multiracial countries like Malaysia. He also emphasised that a united society plays an important role in enhancing the nation’s socio-economic development. Also on the podcast was Dr. Sharifah Munirah Alatas, Senior Lecturer, Strategic Studies & International Relations Department, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.
Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has unveiled a nation unity blueprint for the next decade. But policy figures and leaders from academia are skeptical that the document will do much to realise a society where all races can thrive on a level playing field, both socially and economically. We deep dive into how Malaysia has navigated racial unity since Merdeka, and the fast evolving conversations around what it means to live in a multiracial Malaysia.
