The Institute aims to: contribute towards making public policy-making in Penang and in Malaysia; provide platforms for intellectual and professional exchanges on critical, current and strategic issues affecting Penang and its surrounding region; promote interest in Penang’s cultural activities, and specifically in literary pursuits; aid academic research in general through the maintenance of a research library.
