Malaysia and countries worldwide are grappling with new political and economic challenges. As future think tank leaders, the voices, views and ideas of young researchers and policy entrepreneurs are critical to shaping the policy landscape and devising solutions that will set Malaysia on the right course. 

This session for young thinktankers is an opportunity to explore the current nature of think tanks in Malaysia and globally and to collectively imagine how they could be different in the future. 

Hosted by IDEAS Malaysia, the session is led by Enrique Mendizabal, Founder and Director of On Think Tanks (OTT). Enrique will draw on OTT’s extensive experience engaging think tanks worldwide and the Build a think tank guide – a resource aimed at equipping and empowering policy entrepreneurs to develop their organisations along the models that best fit their circumstances and objectives.
