Human Rights Narratives and Contestation in Malaysia: Contrasting Discourses of 'Universality' and 'Hegemony'

The present chapter focuses on the Malaysian state’s human rights policies and practices in response to increased civil society participation in governance through the venue of non-electoral politics. A central question to be addressed in assessing the Malaysian human rights movement concerns whether, and to what degree, a political culture of participatory democracy may be evolving in the country.  Publication: 4th International Malaysian Studies Conference; 3-5 August 2004, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi.
