Federalisation Vs Decentralisation

Dr Tricia Yeoh, CEO, IDEAS

10-Jan-24 18:00

Federalisation Vs Decentralisation

With Sarawak moving towards autonomy over its health and education sectors, we discuss the idea of a more decentralised government and what the pros and cons might be. First, we speak with Dr Tricia Yeoh on how centralised governance has shaped Malaysia, and whether moving away from it might offer some benefits. Then, we hear from our listeners on whether they'd like to see their state governments have more power.
