Research Interest/ Area

My research is focusing on the roles of the intangible cultural heritage in Malaysia towards the Malays. I am studying specifically the customary law of adat perpatih of the Malays and try to find out how does the customary law of adat perpatih influenced the Malays especially their life and vice versa. My research also tries to examine the relevant mechanism in safeguarding of the customary law of adat perpatih.
