For AOD, we hope this report helps guide public discussion and initiatives that seek to develop answers to challenges of living in diversity. The report explores public opinions on hot-button issues on topics such as education (the teaching of Science & Mathematics in Malay, matriculation quotas), social policies (criminalisation of homosexuality, treatment of immigrants and refugees), racial relations (discrimination in jobs and housing) and economic welfare (minimum wage, race-based economic assistance).
