Human rights in 2021: Did we do better?

The theme for this year’s Human Rights Day on 10 December focused on equality, inclusion and non-discrimination.

And as we approach the end of the year, it is also a good time for us to take stock of how Malaysia has fared in reducing inequalities and advancing human rights.

Astro Awani’s Melisa Idris and Sharaad Kuttan speak to Jerald Joseph, a commissioner with the national human rights commission, Suhakam, and Firdaus Husni, chief human rights strategist at the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights.
