The State of Discrimination in Malaysia

Jason Wee, Co-founder, Architects of Diversity

The State of Discrimination in Malaysia

Article 8 of Malaysia’s Federal Constitution provides that all persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law, and that discrimination is prohibited based on religion, race, descent, place of birth or gender. But is this the reality in the lives of Malaysians? The results of the State of Discrimination Survey run by Architects of Diversity Malaysia found that 64% of Malaysians have experienced some form of discrimination in the past 12 months. 

Here to share more about the findings of that survey and how we can better address discrimination is Jason Wee, Co-founder of Architects of Diversity Malaysia.
