Unpacking the Jargon Behind ‘National Unity’

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has unveiled a nation unity blueprint for the next decade. But policy figures and leaders from academia are skeptical that the document will do much to realise a society where all races can thrive on a level playing field, both socially and economically. We deep dive into how Malaysia has navigated racial unity since Merdeka, and the fast evolving conversations around what it means to live in a multiracial Malaysia.
