This paper examines the measures taken by the Malaysian government to end the disputes caused by the multi-ethnic nature of the country. The author points out that, since the 1969 ethnic riots brought the problem to the forefront, there has been a struggle between the ethnic Malay majority and ethnic minorities within the country. The paper states that this struggle has taken place largely due to the lack of economic integration.

From the Paper:

"The twentieth century has shown us some successful examples, as well as some tragic examples, of countries that are `cobbled' together out of multiple ethnic groups. It can readily be observed, when we take a look at world events, that these unions - like grafts in a physical body - sometimes `take', and other times they do not. For example, the ethnic tensions in the former Yugoslavia held in check for close to half a century by a strong leader, eventually revealed the whole concept of the Yugoslav nation to be a dismal failure."
