Are Malaysians generally tolerant of corruption, accepting it as an inevitable practice and part of our culture? Some think not, and the last general election showed that voters seem to be abandoning the corruption scandal-ridden UMNO and BN parties, resulting in UMNO's worst ever electoral performance.

According to the Merdeka Center's January Public Opinion Survey, 'corruption' is the third most important issue to the public, with around 9% of respondents choosing 'corruption' as their top issue. On the other hand, according to Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index 2022, Malaysia's score has been declining for three consecutive years, dropping by 6 points from 53 (2019) to 47 (2022). This shows that both the public and experts agree that Malaysia's corruption problem is getting worse.

Given these perceptions, what is more interesting is how the public would respond and react.
A cultural problem should stem from a certain belief or perception based on information and narratives that people are accustomed to. So in this public lecture we ask:

- Are people getting enough and the right information about corruption?

- Do the news media and social media report corruption cases fairly and comprehensively?

- What are the challenges and obstacles faced by investigative journalists trying to expose corruption scandals?

- What are the real obstacles for those policy research organisations that are serious about conducting research and trying to uncover the truth informing the public about the corruption network and its impact?

- To what extent does the information provided by the media and research organisations empower people to take action and demand that the government clean up its act?

To learn more about the impact of public perception, information and reactions to corruption, join us on Saturday 22 July (2pm-5pm) for the third public lecture series of the Corruption-Free Generation.
