CENS’ Role in National Security
CENS aspires to be an international research and thought leader in the multidisciplinary study of the concept of resilience and its policy-relevant application to promote security within and beyond Singapore.
Through academic publications such as books and in refereed journals, policy reports and policy-oriented analytical commentaries, CENS promotes greater awareness of emerging threats as well as global best practices in responding to those threats. In addition, CENS organises courses, seminars and workshops for local and foreign national security officials to facilitate networking and exposure to leading ideas on the prevention of, and response to, national and homeland security threats.
To engage with the wider public and draw them into discussions on national security matters, analysts at CENS regularly author opinion editorials in leading newspapers. Radio and television interviews have allowed CENS to partake in and shape public debates on critical issues such as radicalisation and counterterrorism, multiculturalism and social resilience, as well as crisis and strategic communications.
