Belonging is a one day workshop with talks and discussion. Started with 3 sessions of peer-to-peer breakout room discussion, it fosters a bond of peer teaching and personalised learning experience for participants. A topic will be given in each session, such as ‘What are the causes of statelessness?’, and ‘What are the consequences of being stateless?’. Each break out room session will be hosted by one facilitator from SCORP and will only last for 10 minutes. Then, everyone will be called back to the main room to share the end results of their discussion. A facilitator from SCORP will show slides to make a conclusion for the questions. The breakout room discussion is then followed by a panel discussion. 3 panelists from different NGOs will be invited and discussion will be moderated by a moderator from SCORP. Latest situation of statelessness in Malaysia will be discussed and recommendations on how medical students can do as part of the advocacy work will be addressed.
