Mr Muhammad Harris Zainul

Harris Zainul is a researcher at the Institute of Strategic and International Studies (ISIS) Malaysia. At ISIS Malaysia, he analyses national trends and developments with the goal of translating these into public policy recommendations.

Among others, this has so far included in-depth analyses on areas such as the strategic implications of China's Belt and Road Initiative on Malaysia, the consequences of fake news/disinformation on democracy and appropriate measures to be undertaken by the State, and Southeast Asian and Malaysian politics (particularly those concerning identity and race relations), human rights, and democratisation.

He has briefed both domestic and regional stakeholders on his research findings, and has been published in the ISIS Focus, New Straits Times, Malay Mail, Channel News Asia, The Diplomat and the East Asia Forum. His commentary has been featured in The Nation (Thailand), the ASEAN Post (Malaysia), and ABC News (Australia).

He is currently a Ministerial-appointed member of the National Youth Consultative Council, and was formerly an elected member of the Malaysian Youth Parliament and a Perdana Fellow to the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia.

He holds a MA in International Studies and Diplomacy from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London and a Bachelor of Laws with Honours (LL.B) from the University of Liverpool.
