Joshua Ng is a founding member of the National Security Studies Programme.
With a background in thematic histories and area studies, Joshua was an independent researcher after obtaining a first class honours degree and graduating at the top of his class at the National University of Singapore. His award-winning honours thesis received the Wong Lin Ken (a former Minister of Home Affairs) Memorial Medal and Book Prize for the best undergraduate thesis in history.
One part of Joshua’s role in NSSP is to develop the programme’s intellectual capacity in the areas of small state security, globalized pluralized societies, adaptive capacities and resilience. In his other role, he co-organizes and staffs seminars and visits to the highest level of policy makers by overseas thought leaders, as well as the speaking arrangements of local senior policy makers. His involvement includes Security Diplomacy, Outreach and Education, and media work such as explainer videos and documentaries.
In previous lives Joshua has cared for the community, designed in 3D and made specifications for the home renovation of his 3-room flat, assembled computers, done voice overs, produced video documentaries and magazines, worked on an RTS video game and flown a single-prop airplane. In between essays, Joshua can be found playing the guitar, publishing chords on the internet, jamming with his buddies and making multi-track recordings.
