Brunei-Malaysia Forum 2021 in the News

18th September 2021

The 4th Brunei-Malaysia Forum (BMF 2021) took place online on 14th and 15th September 2021. It was hosted by Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) and attended by academics from both UBD and the University of Malaya (UM), as well as members of different institutions and participants from the public.

BMF 2021 was the fourth international collaboration between the Faculties of Arts and Social Sciences at UM and UBD, and was originally slated to take place in a blended format with a mix of local and online participants. However, due to recent pandemic restrictions and circumstances, the decision was made to shift to a fully online mode. In spite of this change, academics from both institutions agreed that the Forum was a resounding success and many pointed out that in some ways, the online mode afforded unique advantages, such as the ease of attending and moving between multiple parallel sessions.

The Forum was also featured on local and regional news, such as Borneo Bulletin and The Star, as well as the news section of the UBD website.
