The Child Law Centre, Faculty of Law, Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia (UiTMLaw), together with the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Chiang Mai Rajabhat University, will be collaborating in undertaking a research project for one year through the Strategic Research Partnership (SRP) Grant.
Led by Dr Nadzriah Ahmad, experienced researchers Associate Professor Dr Normawati Hashim and Associate Professor Dr Sheela Jayabalan from the Child Law Centre, UiTMLaw also team-up this international collaboration.
The research grant awarded will offer researchers from Malaysia and Thailand opportunities to examine the effectiveness of the legal framework in each other’s country to provide access to quality education to indigenous children.
The research findings and suggestions will be shared with the research collaborators from Chiang Mai Rajabhat University and vice versa to enable both universities to propose relevant recommendations to promote better access to quality education for indigenous children in both countries.
Additionally, through this research grant, the Child Law Centre, UiTMLaw, will also be able to undertake comparative analysis and help strengthen the industrial linkages between the two faculties and universities and have the opportunities to publish research papers in this area jointly.
It is the prevalent hope that with the awarding of this research grant, networking, publications, future research collaborations, intellectual discourses, and goodwill shall be established between the Child Law Centre, UiTMLaw and the community of Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Chiang Mai Rajabhat University.
