ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University’s Dr. Nuurrianti Jalli has published a policy paper with the world-renowned public policy organization, the Brookings Institution.

The paper, titled “Disinformation and Democracy in Malaysia,” was part of the Foreign Policy Democracy in Asia project, a collaborative effort by Jalli and fellow policy experts from around the world.
