Based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, IMAN Research is a think tank which concentrates on community resilience, peacebuilding and political matters. We began by focusing in the domains of prevention of violent extremism, and ethnic-religious relations; today, we are diversifying into sustainable development and governance. Malaysia is ideally situated in the Southeast Asian region, right in the middle of Asian Tigers such as Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, with neighbours like Japan and China. Its ecosystem allows us to test out solutions between orthodoxy and modernity, as well as indigenous and immigrant populations. We aim to deliver sound policy solutions along with implementable action plans with measurable outcomes.
IMAN is spearheaded by experts with extensive local and international experience in the areas of social policy development, community resilience and engagement, particularly in the area of PVE, electoral reform, participatory urban redevelopment and psycho- social intervention within communities in conflict. We are competent in cross-cultural engagement and as an organization, we place a high value on inclusivity, diversity and indigenous knowledge.
