End of the line for AUKU?

Henry Koh, Author, “No Politics on Campus”

28-Jun-18 08:35

End of the line for AUKU?

For over 40 years, the fundamental rights of university students to fully participate in politics have been restricted by laws governing tertiary institutions.  The Universities and University Colleges Act - better known by its Malay acronym AUKU - is legislative centerpiece in the control of campus life. Today we speak to Fortify Rights: a non-profit human rights organisation based in Bangkok that commissioned the report. A report that documents recent violations of Malaysian university students’ rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association. 

Presented by: Sharaad Kuttan, Melisa Idris, Joyce Goh
