With ethnic and religious tension part of its early history, the maintenance of social harmony is an issue of concern for policymakers in Singapore. Incidences such as the Little India Riot as well as the constant online expression of anti-immigrant sentiment may perhaps indicate the development of new social fault lines. The theme for this upcoming workshop – Social Fault Lines and Singapore – aims to be a platform for a discussion on current and possible future social fault lines within Singaporean society. Speakers from multi-disciplinary backgrounds will offer insights on panels such as Religion: Balancing the demands of the religious, and the less or non-religious as well as Gender and Sexuality that will be of utility to both policymakers and researchers.
Who Should Attend
Policymakers, mid to senior-level officers and analysts, researchers, academics and members of civil society interested and involved in the matters pertaining to Singapore’s social fabric.
