Founded in 2010, the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) is Malaysia’s leading independent research institute on public policy in the areas of governance, enterprise and economics and social policies.

The IDEAS Donor programme was established to provide donors with direct access to fact-based and solutions-oriented dialogue at the national and regional level. The programme offers donors insights into our research and advocacy work as well as exclusive access to our high level events. With our unrivalled convening power and cross-partisan platform, we attract industry heads and prominent thinkers from across government, academia, businesses and the media to offer the best solutions for critical policy issues in the country.
