The Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR) is a non-partisan and not for profit organization. MCCHR aim's to provide an integrated approach towards the protection and promotion of human rights in Malaysia, doing so through prominent civic education programs. This session brought by the MCCHR team provides a deeper understanding of the relevant governing bodies and their power structures within Malaysia as a means to educate the youth on the various stakeholders within the ecosystem that they must consider in their civic engagement journeys. The lesson also showcases how community problems can be intimately analyzed by separating the root of the problem from the causes and the consequences. This strategy provides participants a framework to identify the true root causes of the problems they want to tackle, along with understanding how the community is truly affected as a result. By seeing the bigger picture and understanding the context of the issue, you will be able to decide on how to direct your campaign efforts in the right direction.
