Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Communities Liaison Committee (CLC) was established in 1949[1] by the British rulers of Malaysia, comprising the top echelon of Malayan politicians from different communities, to address sensitive issues, especially those related to ethnicity. Compromises on a number of issues, including citizenship, education, democracy, and Malay supremacy, were agreed on and set the stage for Malayan independence.[2] The CLC was chaired by Malcolm MacDonald, the British Commissioner-General for Southeast Asia.[1]

The Communities Liaison Committee can be considered as the prototype for multiracial political cooperation.[3][1]
