Social Protection Instead Of Affirmative Action

Datuk Dr Norma Mansor, Emeritus Professor, Social Wellbeing Research Centre of Universiti Malaya | Stephen Barrett, Chief of Social Policy, UNICEF

Social

Race-based affirmative action policies have been an albatross around the neck of all Malaysians. Leaders like Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Tun Daim Zainuddin are now touting needs-based affirmative action. Our panel experts argue for social protection instead of affirmative action as the progressive way forward. Forming the panel is Emeritus Professor Datuk Dr Norma Mansor at the Social Wellbeing Research Centre of Universiti Malaya, and Stephen Barrett, Chief of Social Policy at UNICEF.
