Last on Law & Behold, we discussed federalism in Malaysia, with a special focus on Peninsula Malaysia. This month, we continue that discussion and shift our focus to Sabah and Sarawak, to discuss if this system of federal governance has worked in East Malaysia, and also what the amendment to the Federal Constitution in 2022 - to recognize the special rights of Sabah and Sarawak - has achieved thus far. Joining us for this discussion are Emeritus Professor Datuk Dr Hj Shad Saleem Faruqi (Holder of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Chair, University of Malaya) and Roger Chin (President, Sabah Law Society).
Law & Behold is a monthly series which aims to arm Malaysians with constitutional literacy, and is done in collaboration with The Malaysian Bar, the University of Malaya's Faculty of Law, and the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR).
