Malaysia Elected To UN Human Rights Council

Malaysia has secured one of the 18 seats on the UN Human Rights Council, for the third time since the council's formation in 2006. We discuss if this is this significant, and what we are expected to do in this role. And then, we look at the most pressing human rights concerns here in Malaysia, especially as we emerge from the pandemic. Finally, where does the private sector come in?
