Comments on Purpose and Drawback
All members
This report serves the requirement of Ajarn. Dr. WasonLueangpapat and the needs of those who wish to learn how government works in Malaysia, focusing on the system of public administration. According to what we have learned and conceive in the Comparative Public Administration course, Ajarn. Wason contributes us many case studies of United Kingdom, United State of America, Germany and Thailand. This report is a term assignment that we must research and analyze; (1) structure, (2) process, (3) challenge, and (4) change in public administration of interested country. In this report, these topics allow answering such questions as: * What is the general background of Malaysia?

* What is the Malaysian’s governmental structure and process? * What are the challenges of Malaysian’s public administration? * How Malaysia deals with those upcoming challenges?
This report has included what topics that ajarn. Wason has mentioned during Q&A on our group presentation, Decentralization and local governance in Malaysia: * British Colonial Legacy
* Decentralization
* Inter-Governmental Relationships
* Community Relations and Emerging Recentralization
* Process Toward Recentralization and Weakening on Decentralization * Reinforcing Centralization
* Restructuring and Impact on Decentralization
* Where to Decentralization?
This report required a lot of time consuming because there are many detail to research and look through. Therefore members attempted to copy and paste information into this report which was considered as plagiarism. As the editor of this report, I had already asked them to make every copy and paste into their own languages and paraphrases. We had tried our best to accomplish this paper. Please give us a suitable mark.
