New Naratif aims to make Southeast Asians proud of our region, our shared culture, and our shared history. We fight for the dignity and freedom of the Southeast Asian people by building a community of people across the region to imagine and articulate a better Southeast Asia.

We do this by:

  • conducting research and publishing in-depth evidence-based stories about Southeast Asia, in a variety of formats and languages (research articles, journalism features, comics, podcasts, and videos), that reflect the genuine experiences and concerns of the Southeast Asian people;

  • advocating for and modelling ethical, moral, and progressive values rooted in the Southeast Asian context; and

  • increasing understanding and connectivity across the region through work that transcends borders, boundaries, and barriers.
