Methodology and Focus Areas
CENTHRA’s goals are met through participatory research, deliberative dialogue, educational outreach, public debate, grass-root engagement and policy consultation with various groups of human rights stakeholders at the local, national, regional and international levels.
CENTHRA’s methodology encompasses
the conceptual framework that addresses the legal issues arising from the Malaysian Constitution, philosophical concerns of the Rukun Negara as well as domestic value and norms,
along with Malaysian culture and religion.
By articulating domestic sensitivities at the international level, via ASEAN Human Rights Declaration (AHRD) (at the ASEAN level) and UDHR, CENTHRA believes that this achieves the UDHR aims in setting a common standard for all member states.
