We are a group of civil society organisations seeking to establish a network of like-minded individuals and organisations in pursuit of national cohesion and unity. We are concerned but determined. We believe the Smart Partnership ethos (based on respect, trust, transparency and tolerance) and practice (constructive engagement for beneficial outcome to all stakeholders) are seen as the right framework.

Through Dialog Rakyat, we will formulate an action plan in a declaration of national cohesion and unity and a code of ethical conduct for individuals, groups and organisations.

Dialog Rakyat will consists of a keynote address, panel discussions followed by roundtable discussions. It will conclude with presentation of roundtable findings and resolutin on national cohesion and unity.
