BFM talks to Abd Jalil, a fellow of the International Institute of Public Policy and Management at the University of Malaya, and Amnesty International Malaysia executive director Katrina Jorene Maliamauv about the proposal to close the Malaysia office of the UN refugee agency (UNHCR).
They first examine the role that the UNHCR has always had for the management and protection of refugees in our country, and how developments like the Malaysian government’s “Tracking Refugees Information System” have factored into this. They then discuss what the Malaysian government will need to have in place to make this work.
