MUDA Research Study on Young Malaysians and National Unity

Malaysia is polarized along both racial and religious lines and this is possible source of serious strife for this multi-racial and multi-religious country. So it is a great and praiseworthy effort of the The Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS) to have conducted a study involving 1000 young Malaysians between the age of 18 and 35 years in Peninsular Malaysia regarding their opinions of National Unity over a period from July to August 2007 . Both rural and urban areas were covered. The study found that young Malaysians were generally optimistic about the state of national unity in the country, but some disturbing trends need to be urgently addressed to avoid further racial polarization.

In the email I received, Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute and the National Young Lawyers’ Committee (NYLC) of the Bar Council were also mentioned, but I am not sure what are the relationship between them. Whatever it is, they will be launching the MINDA MUDA Research Study on Young Malaysians and National Unity together with a press conference. You and your representative are invited.

To help you get to the Bar Council quickly without wasting time, petrol, energy, below are maps to help guide you. It is best to go by LRT (Light Rail Transit) Putra line. You may get off at Pasar LRT Station, walk towards Pasar Seni and the Bar Council is just a bit further after Pasar Seni. Click on map to enlarge it:

However, if you don't want to walk too far, a nearer and more convenient place to get off is the Masjid Jamek LRT station. Lebuh Pasar Besar and the Malaysian Bar Council is just a short walk from there.
