In 2018 the Office of Transitional Initiatives/USAID asked SeeD to tailor its SCORE methodology to understanding the social transformation priorities for Malaysia. Working with the Malaysian research organization, the Merdeka Centre, SeeD designed a process to understand the behavioural dynamics underlying citizens choices and preferences when it came to structural legislative reforms. The research was done in support of the Malaysian Government’s new approach to designing policies which sought to remove factors impeding social-cultural and political equity across Malaysian society. SeeD assisted the Merdeka Centre in developing a multi-dimensional survey of the Malaysia electorate to localize the SCORE and interpret the results. SeeD directly engaged policy end-users in the conceptual design of the study in order to understand which policy reform issues should be investigated, and which citizens' characteristics (e.g. skills, preferences) might be salient in understanding what drives support or opposition to a specific policy reform. Additional indicators were included to cover the scope of Malaysia’s socio-political realities, including those from SeeD’s life skills framework, (e.g. life skills for learning or for collaboration, life skills for co-existence or for participation) and specific civic competencies (e.g. willingness to vote or pay taxes, entrepreneurial and employability competencies). The initial project phase is due to end in March 2019, with future phases being planned for the next 18 months.
