Community-In-Review Seminar 2010: 'The Malay Youth: Transformation Of A Generation'

[Event has ended]

The Malays have a relatively young population: 175,100 or 35% of the population is aged between 5 and 24 years of age. The socio-economic development of the young is therefore especially important to the Malay community.

The youthful Malay population is an asset to the community provided their potential could be harnessed. This would probably entail inculcation of values, development of goals and the strategies to achieve them.

There is a need also for the community to be vigilant against potential threats to youth development. The current trends among youth poses questions about how the community should respond to them. For example, rising consumerism threatens to breed predisposition to materialism and excessive indulgence in entertainment and fads. Consumerism is suspected to contribute to delinquency problems, such as increased crime rate among youth. The emergence of subcultures among Malay youth, such as the practice of cohabitation leading to problems like early marriages or pregnancies outside wedlock are also issues the community is facing. The new media poses additional challenges. The internet has been a growing source of education and influence. Strategies to inoculate the young against consuming ideologies that could be detrimental to their development needs to be enhanced


Centre for Research on Islamic and Malay Affairs (RIMA), in collaboration with the Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP), will be having an annual Community in Review Seminar 2010 on the topic, "The Malay Youth: A Transformation of a Generation", to understand the future trends and challenges for our local youths.

It is our pleasure to invite you to join us at this session to discuss on the trends and challenges that our Malay Youths may face and how it will affect the community.

Please RSVP to [email protected] by Monday, 08 March 2010, 12 noon. For enquiries, please contact Shariff/Lendra at DID: 6517 4971/72.
