Centre For Public Policy Studies

ASLI's Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS) carries out research studies on nation-building contributing to important public debates on ethnic relations, good governance and corruption, poverty and income inequalities, education and human capital developement, national competitiveness and sustainable development. The CPPS programmes are aimed at building a fair and just multi-racial, multi-religious society. Our work is a mixture of research and consultancy, policy analysis and research, advocacy, awareness campaigns, workshops, roundtables and dialogues and political commentary.

Our Priority Areas:

In 2011, The Global Go To Think Tanks Report from the University of Pennsylvania ranked ASLI's Centre for Public Policy Studies #16 for the Top Asia Think Tank out of 1198 think tanks in Asia. CPPS was also ranked in two other categories in the same report - CPPS came 29th, and was the only Malaysian think tank ranked in the Top 30 Transparency and Good Governance Think Tanks, and was also ranked #14 for Top Think Tanks with annual operating budget of less than USD5m.

We are delighted with this international recognition which ranked us among the World's best Think Tanks. This is an honour not only for ASLI's CPPS but also for the country.
