Managing Peace in Malaysia: a Case Study in Developing an Early Warning System for Ethnic Relations (KITA-MESRA®)
This paper provides the background, historical perspective, structures of peace, conceptual framework and preliminary findings of a research project which monitor ethnic relations and creates an early warning system on the ‘health’ level of ethnic relations in Malaysia in order to manage peace. Existing monitoring projects on ethnic relations in the country tend to focus on the negative aspects of these relations such as ethnic-related grievances and the number of ethnic group conflicts taking place. This project uses a positive indicator based on good governance and quality of life indices as a way to understand the level or quality of ethnic relations in Malaysia.
Keywords: Ethnic relations, Malaysia, Monitoring system, Managing peace.
