Malaysia has secured one of the 18 seats on the UN Human Rights Council, for the third time since the council’s formation in 2006.
BFM discuss if this is this significant, and what we are expected to do in this role. And then, it looks at the most pressing human rights concerns here in Malaysia, especially as we emerge from the pandemic. Finally, where does the private sector come in?
On the line are Firdaus Husni, chief human rights strategist at the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights; Adrian Pereira, executive director of North-South Initiative; Khor Yu Leng, a political economist with Segi Enam Advisors.
