Who We Are

REFSA is a progressive, not-for-profit research institute providing relevant and reliable analysis on social, economic and political issues affecting Malaysians with the aim of promoting open and constructive discussions that result in effective policies and good governance to address those issues.

Towards this end, REFSA  publishes Focus Papers, infographics and  commentaries and conducts workshops, presentations and radio shows to disseminate its findings. Topics REFSA has covered include the deployment of our national police force, subsidy policies, the federal government budget, state government procurement policies and the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).   We have proven that economics and government policies can be made palatable to the masses.



REFSA is funded by individuals and organisations who share our vision for a better Malaysia and support our commitment to impartial research. If you or your corporation would like to contribute to REFSA’s initiatives or fund a specific research project, please support us.
