Our mission is to develop efficient and equitable solutions to the region’s most pressing development problems. We are grouped into three sections: economic studies, governance studies, and social progress & education.
More than ever, there is a pressing need for policy specialists with theoretical knowledge, technical knowledge and implementation abilities. JCI intends to raise the next generation of leaders through our postgraduate programmes.
JCI administers the Jeffrey Cheah Travel Grants to allow Sunway-affiliated researchers and Harvard scholars to travel between both institutions for research, knowledge-sharing and cross-cultural communication.
