MWKA Public Series Lunch Talks- Human Rights in Malaysia: Facing the Challenges


The basic idea of human rights is that each one of us, no matter who we are or where we are born, is entitled to the same basic rights and freedoms.
That may sound straightforward enough, but it gets incredibly complicated as soon as anyone tries to put the idea into practice.
What exactly are the basic human rights in Malaysia? What are the challenges when upholding the basic human rights?

*Accession to Human Rights Treaties
*Freedom of expression and speech
*Freedom of assembly
*Preventive detention
*Death penalty, torture
*Rights to education, health
*Rights of women, children
