In this workshop, participants will explore the meaning of vulnerable groups, the varied impact of gender on these groups and the role good governance can play in addressing the needs of marginalised groups. The unequal power hierarchy in society which leads to different types of discrimination in society will be discussed.
With a deeper understanding of these issues, participants will be better equipped to put their soon-to-be acquired writing skills to share their ideas in articles that will challenge the sources of these discriminations and violations of rights.
Lunch and two tea breaks will be provided free. (A nominal registration fee of RM10 per workshop will be collected. Participants are expected to bring their own laptops.)
