Tengku Qistina

Tengku Qistina focuses on women and gender issues. She writes on domestic violence, women’s policies and women’s empowerment. She is inspired by her experience of voluntary social work in Kelantan, where she develops programmes for her family’s foundation. Her social work has also exposed her to the vast rural-urban divide as well as the role and vulnerability of women, following her experience of observing Kelantanese women. She has written vastly on this through her monthly personal New Straits Times column since 2016.

She infuses her passion for social work and women’s empowerment through the Network she founded, Network of Women in Foreign Affairs and Security (WISEA) in Malaysia that gathers and convenes women and girls working in security.

She first joined ISIS Malaysia as a Researcher in September 2016 following her LLB Law degree from The University of Manchester. In August 2018, she left to pursue her MA in National Security Studies at King's College, London.

She is currently a Senior Researcher, and reports to Mr. Terence Too Yang-Yau, Fellow, Social Policy and National Integration (SPNI). Qistina is contactable at extension 149, or tnqistina@isis.org.my.
