1MDB: 4 characters synonymous in Malaysia with “corruption” and “scandal”. Even years later, it is shocking how billions of ringgit were embezzled by high-ranking government officials, and the question is: Why and how did this happen?

If you hire someone for a job (and give them the right to spend your money and make decisions on your behalf), shouldn’t you also have a right to know how and why they are spending your money? But in imperfect Southeast Asia, where politicians, structures, and institutions are often less than honest about their backgrounds, dealings, and interests, this is not often the case. Without transparency and accountability at all levels, can we say that we, as Southeast Asians, are truly democratic in every sense of the word?

Here at New Naratif, we believe that it’s both the form and substance that makes a democracy truly democratic. Transparency and accountability are part and parcel of a true Southeast Asian democracy; together with our guest speaker Aira Azhari from IDEAS, we’ll be diving into how important transparency and accountability is to democracy, what happens in its absence, and how we,  as ordinary citizens, can fight to ensure it for all.
