Law & Behold #43: Malaysian Federalism

In this episode of Law & Behold, we discuss federalism in Malaysia, while exploring constitutional guarantees with regard to state-federal relations and division of powers in the country. We also ask some tricky questions: has this system of federal governance worked in Malaysia? Does the constitutional design favour the central over the state governments, and if so, are amendments needed towards decentralisation? Helping us to unpack all this and more are Emeritus Professor Datuk Dr Hj Shad Saleem Faruqi, Holder of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Chair at the University of Malaya, and Kee Hui Yee, a lawyer with Kanesalingam & Co.

Law & Behold is a monthly series which aims to arm Malaysians with constitutional literacy, and is done in collaboration with The Malaysian Bar, the University of Malaya's Faculty of Law, and the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR).
