Society is driven by ideology, beliefs, and sentiments which are the foundations of public perception.

IMAN is a boutique think tank focusing on research and community engagement. The team behind IMAN consists of academics, researchers, writers, journalists, policy specialists, and civil society activists with more than 10 years of work experience within the public and private sectors.

IMAN started off as conversations between three friends who realised a serious gap in information and on the ground realities that impact Malaysia. Together, they founded a research outfit to engage with stakeholders such as governments, international bodies and civil society organisations.
