In this talk, emeritus professor and Aliran member Johan Saravanamuttu focuses on Malaysia as a multicultural nation with diverse communities.
Of late, ethnic and religious polarisation has worried many of us. But this is not something new. Such polarisation has always been mediated through coalitional politics. In fact, power-sharing has been a bedrock of Malaysia’s politics.
Johan will critically look at the politics of ethnic collaboration and then propose how Malaysia can move forward as a more inclusive and multicultural nation under its current “unity government”.
