Join the discussion potential on solutions and existing programs that improve the state of refugees and migrants in Malaysia.

Several crises that unfolded over this past month have exposed the desperate situation of refugees and migrants in Malaysia, from the government’s initial response to the Rohingyas refugees at sea, to the discovery of 139 refugee grave sites along the Malaysian-Thai border. There are currently over 150,000 refugees and asylum-seekers registered with the Malaysian UNHCR. Currently, these refugees cannot access legal employment, formal education, or affordable health care.

What kinds of state-based or societal changes need to occur to improve the lives of refugees in Malaysia? What kinds of programs already exist to do this, and are they working? What needs to happen so that the situation doesn’t worsen, and crises do not re-occur? And, of course, how can you get involved?

Join us June 15th, 7:30PM at Mercu UEM as we ask experts and practitioners these questions.

This month, our panelists are:

  • Brian Gorlick, Deputy Representative, United Nationa High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR)
  • Yolanda Lopez, Programme Officer, Malaysian Social Research Institute (MSRI)
  • Jessica Wee, Voice of Refugees

Moderator: Arlene Tan, DurianAsean
