Think tank

The Centre

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Along with unprecedented global challenges, Malaysia is facing immense political change and rising polarisation. As a centrist think tank, The Centre aims to be a force for national resilience through these turbulent times by researching and advocating progressive, pragmatic and sensible policy ideas. Focusing on the areas of public goods, safety nets and societal contracts, we bring data-driven yet accessible, people-first research work from the ground to policymakers and the public.
