The Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) invites you to attend its National Higher Education Conference 2017 on the theme "How to Make Our Universities More Autonomous?"

IDEAS embarked on a pioneering project on researching autonomy in higher education in Malaysia. Professor Tan Sri Dr. Dzulkifli Abdul Razak was appointed as IDEAS’ Chair in Higher Education to lead this project. The purpose of this project is to study how higher education institutions in Malaysia can be improved by giving them more autonomy, yet ensuring they are accountable at the same time.

This study builds upon the National Higher Education Blueprint as well as the Wan Zahid Report of 2005, which was tabled in Parliament the same year.
