For community spirit to thrive, the Ugly Singaporean must go
Commentary by Damien D. Cheong
TODAY, 18 Apr 2014

Singaporeans have been asked to reflect on their behaviour and attitude toward their fellow human beings once again. Being gracious and considerate, as the author argues, is not simply about being pleasant as an individual, but such a disposition enhances national cohesiveness as well.

Beware of ‘lone wolf’ terrorists
The Sun Daily (Malaysia), 15 Apr 2014

Terrorism is mutating and constantly evolving in this age and time, says Kumar Ramakrishna (Head). He noted that there are terrorist cells which do not recruit people, but are self-radicalised individuals who (adopt) the ideas of the terrorist groups and carry out their plans. "There is a rise in 'lone wolves', where these self-radicalised individuals log on to YouTube and the internet and view information about these terrorist groups," Dr Kumar said at the ‘Putrajaya Forum 2014: Defence and Security Forum for Peace’ at the Putra World Trade Centre.

Jihadists in Syria: Indonesian Extremists Giving Support?
Eurasia Review, 10 Apr 2014

Navhat Nuraniyah (Associate Research Fellow) commented that the emergence of overt supporters of the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS) in Indonesia has raised concerns regarding links between local and global jihadi groups. This overt support does not necessarily mean ISIS may take root in Indonesia.

Terror threats: Private sector, public 'must play their part'
The Straits Times, page B2, 8 Apr 2014

When dealing with the threats of today - such as terrorism, cyber warfare and epidemics - government efforts alone are not enough, Second Minister for Home Affairs and Trade and Industry S. Iswaran said yesterday. The private sector and general public must play their part, he added, while governments also need to talk to one another. Speaking at the opening of the eighth annual Asia-Pacific Programme for Senior National Security Officers (APPSNO) yesterday, Mr Iswaran said today's threats have three things in common - they cross borders, can develop quickly, and are difficult to resolve. Mr Barry Desker, dean of RSIS which is organising the five-day event, called for "a mindset shift" and an acknowledgment by stakeholders that today's complicated threats cannot be eliminated totally, but "managed and maintained at acceptable levels". More than 80 senior national security practitioners, policymakers and academics from 26 countries will exchange ideas through panels and lectures.

The Challenge of Systemic Resilience for National Security
Date: 7 - 11 April 2014

In recent years the strategic concept of resilience has become increasingly central to our understanding of homeland and national security issues. But how can this potentially rich concept be operationalized in practical terms for policy purposes?

Leading governance and security experts in homeland security matters from around the world will be invited to share their experiences and address the following broad topics:

1. Various national approaches to "systemic resilience".

2. Applying the systemic resilience concept to key national and homeland security issues particular to the Asia Pacific region and beyond, such as for instance countering violent extremism, coping with rapid technological changes, as well as government and community preparedness and response in national emergencies.

3. Case studies of best practices, strategies and lessons learned in dealing with various homeland security issues from a systems-based resilience perspective.

Changi Airport’s security measures enhanced following MH370's disappearance
Channel NewsAsia, 24 Mar 2014

Following the recent disappearance of Malaysia Airlines MH370, security has been further raised at Singapore's Changi Airport as a precautionary measure. In 2013, some 53.7 million passengers passed through Changi Airport -- that is about 147,000 passengers each day. Not only that, more than 6,900 flights either landed at or departed from Changi Airport that year. Kumar Ramakrishna (head) said airport security is something that simply cannot be taken for granted. The challenge is always to ensure a balance between security and efficiency. It's not just about security, security is paramount, but at the same time because Singapore and other countries are part of the global economy, the relative efficient flow of passengers is also very important.

Singapore and the MH370 Saga: A Friend in Need
Lianhe Zaobao, 24 Mar 2014

Bilveer Singh (Adjunct Senior Fellow) mentioned that if and when the MH370 saga is resolved, the consequences and knock-on effects will reverberate not just through the aviation industry but also the political, military and diplomatic domains. He also commented that being a proximate neighbour of Malaysia with a complex web of close relationships, Singapore could not avoid the ripple-effects of the episode; even though there were no Singaporeans on the missing aircraft, Singapore’s involvement in the search for MH370 stood out in a number of ways.

The key thing is that countries should make it a point to be electronically linked to the Interpol database -- as an added and important layer in the range of border controls to detect false travel documentation used by drug mules or terrorists."

Revising the revisionists: Operation Coldstore in history
IPS Commons, 20 Feb 2014

Writing for the IPS Commons online forum, Kumar Ramakrishna (Head) argues that the recent controversy over the naming of the Indonesian navy vessel after two Indonesian marines convicted of the March 1965 MacDonald House bombing, suggests that the current Singaporean zeitgeist is receptive to revisionist and not always accurate reassessments of our history. He examines one such defining historical episode Operation Coldstore, showing that recent revisionist retellings are flawed.

Don't fall for a terrorist's bait
The Straits Times, 31 Jan 2014

What happened on Sept 11, 2001, when Al-Qaeda suicide terrorists crashed aircraft into New York's World Trade Centre, was tragic. But the United States' response the following day created a new set of problems, says Professor Mark Juergensmeyer (CENS Distinguished Visiting Fellow), an expert on religious violence. That was the day the US described the attack as "an act of war". "It bit the bait Osama bin Laden had laid for the US. I thought to myself, 'Why on earth are we promoting the ideology of Osama bin Laden?'. "By going for the military solution, we validated bin Laden's view with our own rhetoric and actions," he says.

"Some military strategists even talk of so-called Fifth Generation Warfare in which 'super-empowered' lone wolves may in the coming decade exploit digital technology to mount crippling cyber attacks on national infrastructure. They may even deploy small radiological devices against cities," he says. It is important to have effective counter-ideological campaigns aimed at undermining the violent extremist ideology that sustains them, he adds.

Waging propaganda war against terrorists
The Straits Times, 13 Dec 2013

In a major interview with Straits Times Senior Correspondent M. Nirmala, Kumar Ramakrishna (Head) discussed at length his views on how historical uses of propaganda - or what is nowadays called "strategic communication" - may have enduring value for the current war against violent extremism. Besides discussing his views on how the real root of terrorism is not so much ideology but rather goes back to human nature itself, he also surveyed the work of CENS researchers and emphasized how they seek to produce research that is able to effectively inform national security practice.

The Confounding Math Behind Cyber Attacks
The Business Times Weekend, 8 Dec 2013

Cyber threats have increasingly brought doomsday-type scenarios within our peripheral vision; occasionally, they have struck key facilities or disrupted businesses. Senol Yilmaz (Associate Research Fellow) said some conditions are key for a worst-case scenario to materialise. For one, there needs to be a "state-actor" - an individual or group acting on behalf of a government - and this state-actor needs to have highly sophisticated cyber capabilities and great motivation to inflict harm. In the current international climate, he does not see any state-actor that would have the motivation to hit Singapore.

Monks who drive religious intolerance and hinder reform
Jakarta Post, 15 Dec 2013

Eliane Coates (Senior Analyst) noted that two hundred Buddhist monks took to the streets of Yangon on 12 November to protest the visit of a delegation of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation. Many Buddhist monks are re-igniting anti-Muslim animosity and Burman Buddhist nationalism. While in the past Burmese nationhood has been fundamentally linked to Buddhism, now is time for a more concerted effort by Myanmar, and in particular its senior Buddhist monks, to embrace multiculturalism, condemn hate speech, and find strength in ethnic diversity.

"We would be blindsided and miss things if we have narrow perspectives," he said.

Sharing the burden of cybersecurity
The Straits Times, 13 Nov 2013

Senol Yilmaz (Associate Research Fellow) wrote in his commentary with Ho Kah Kin, from Cisco Systems, that the current defacements of government and business websites are a great nuisance to the victims. However, Anonymous, the network of hackers allegedly behind these defacements, also threatened to attack Singapore's financial sector to "cause financial loss" though it remains to be seen whether Anonymous can carry out cyberattacks that would result in significant financial damage. He argued that it would be reasonable to share the burden of protecting cyberspace in public-private partnership, despite both having divergent interests. Close public-private partnership can prevent mere cyber-nuisance from transforming into a national security threat and finally lead to a win-win situation: an environment conducive for economic activity in a secure nation.
