Global Bersih - Malaysians Across Borders
Global Bersih is a non-profit organization established under the Swiss Civil Code. It aims to support Malaysian civil society’s efforts to strengthen Malaysia’s maturing democracy using peaceful and legal means of action. For Malaysia to progress as a democratic society, the citizens’ right to a free and fair elections which is professional, impartial and transparent in all its stages of its administration must be promoted and protected. Global Bersih sees the need to increase public understanding of what free and fair election means, not only to enhance voters’ awareness and knowledge, but also to uphold democracy in the country. Global Bersih is proud to be part of the vibrant Swiss civil society as it enables a stronger international platform for it to advocate for its causes, taking advantage of the dynamic international human rights movement in Geneva, a global human rights capital.
