Centre for Policy Research (CPR) Universiti Sains Malaysia
CenPRIS is Malaysia oldest policy research centre, serving as the focus of the University's efforts in consultancy services, research and graduate supervision related to public policy and international studies. It was established in 2007 from the amalgamation of two existing research centres: theCentre for Policy Research (CPR), which wasestablished in 1974, and theCentre for International Studies (CIS), which wasestablished in 2004.
With the amalgamation, in the context of globalization and Malaysia being a highly open economy, the public policy aspect will also now have an international dimension to it. With the amalgamation, nation building, which is the niche area of the Centre, will have both domestic and international perspectives.
The Centre's graduate studies programme prepares candidates for scholarly and leadership roles in government, universities, research organisations, and other settings where knowledge and research skills in public policy and international studies are needed. The programme is committed to accomplishing this mission by creating an intellectually vibrant atmosphere for scholarship involving an active faculty from a broad spectrum of academic disciplines and extensive interaction with government agencies and community groups. CenPRIS welcomes graduate students to pursue Masters and Ph. D. study programmes by research in the focus areas.

For the past seven years, the student exchange program between Universiti Sains Malaysia and Hiroshima City University has proven to be a highly rewarding and enriching experience for Malaysian students. Through the program, students have gained valuable insights into Japanese culture, including customs, ethics, and traditions.
A highlight of the program has been the opportunity for students to live with Japanese families, generously hosted by the HIPPO Family Club. This immersive experience has allowed the students to gain a deeper appreciation of Japanese culture and build meaningful relationships with their hosts. By participating in local community activities and attending lectures at Hiroshima City University, students have also gained a greater understanding of the city's history, particularly the effects of World War II and the remarkable reconstruction of Hiroshima after the atomic bombing.
Beyond the personal benefits for students, the exchange program has also fostered cultural exchange and understanding between Malaysia and Japan. Through sharing their own experiences and culture, Malaysian students have strengthened the bonds between the two countries and promoted cross-cultural understanding.
Thank you to the City of Hiroshima for the splendid experience “Let all the souls here rest in peace, for we shall not repeat the evil."
