    MALAYSIA'S GREEN SUKUK*

    by
    MAHBUBI ALI

    Environmental preservation has been over the last few years the focus of renewed investors' attention, evidenced by the growing interest toward socially responsible investment (SRI) instruments. Green sukuk, a Shariah compliant SRI instrument for renewable energy and other environmental sustainability projects, is an important and commendable initiative.

    Malaysia, being a home to the world’s largest sukuk market, pioneered the issuance of green sukuk. On 27th July 2017 the Securities Commission (SC) of Malaysia announced the inaugural debut of the worlds’ first green sukuk under its SRI sukuk framework. This historical milestone is the result of a joint effort between SC Malaysia, Bank Negara Malaysia and the World Bank Group to facilitate the development of green financing and to increase investors’ greater participation in SRI sukuk.

    HARNESSING THE NEW LEGAL PLURALISM AND 'SATU MALAYSIA' POLICY
    AS INSTRUMENTS FOR FOSTERING UNITY IN MALAYSIA


    by
    M. K. Imam-Tamim[i]
    Najibah Mohd Zin[ii]
    Norliah Ibrahim[iii]

    Abstract

    Malaysia is legally pluralistic country as it is inhabited by peoples of diverse socio-cultural and racial backgrounds. After its independence, successive Malaysian governments have been making several efforts to unite its citizens - comprising the Malays, Chinese and Indians. The unity of Malaysia has been challenged at several times due to allegations that the government and the citizens fail to adequately manage the plurality of laws and cultures in the country. Successive governments have thus put in place various policies to help foster unity in the country. Nevertheless, the citizens have treated these efforts with suspicion. One of such efforts is the "satu Malaysia" policy of the current government. This paper, therefore, intends to examine the basis of the 'satu Malaysia' concept, its relationship with the concept of legal pluralism and show how both of these socio-economic and legal concepts can be harnessed to foster trust and unity amongst Malaysians. This paper will add to the existing contributions on law, peace and development in Malaysia. The paper adopts the qualitative research methodology by engaging in documentary content analysis of various primary and secondary sources of literature on law and social policy in Malaysia. This paper finds that legal pluralism and the 'satu Malaysia' policy, if properly harnessed, can be used to improve on mutual trust and unity among the various groups in Malaysia.

    TELECOMMUNICATION BUSINESS IN NIGERIA AND THE NEED FOR LEGISLATIVE INTERVENTION

    by
    ADEOLA OLUFUNKE KEHINDE*

    Abstract

    In the last two decades of mobile telecommunication business in Nigeria, academic efforts have been concentrated on the positive impacts of the industry on the nation's economy. Little attention has, however, been paid to the adverse effects of the industry's activities on the citizens. It is against this backdrop that this paper seeks to investigate some of the challenges that Nigerians face resulting from the activities of mobile telecommunication companies in Nigeria. The data used in the paper are drawn from the extant literature, reports of surveys, and questionnaires from selected states of the federation. The data are subjected to in-depth analysis. The findings revealed that most of the machines and facilities that are used by the companies in the industry pose environmental and health threats to the citizens. It was also found that these challenges appear to have persisted because of a legislative gap to adequately regulate the affairs of the industry. The paper concludes with some recommendations that could ensure that the country and its citizens have an all-around beneficial mobile telecommunication business.
