Description of it:-
The "Merdeka Agreement" signed on August 5 1957 is arguably the basis of the much talked about social contract in Malaysia. In general, it touches on the position of the Malays and Islam in the country. Discussions on Malaysia will necessarily touch on the issue for it necessarily defines the identity of Malaysia. At times, the issue generates heated debate in public sphere.

Professor Clive Kessler of UNSW will share his perspective on the matter at this session of Malaysia Forum Sydney. He is a Professor Emeritus at School of Social Sciences and International Studies at UNSW. As stated in his profile page at UNSW, he focuses his research effort on "politics, religion, culture and social change in Malaysia and South East Asia".

The Forum also hopes to raise awareness of civil society issues by providing a neutral platform for the exchange of ideas and resources for further action.
