To this end, NSSP conducts research in three broad analytically distinct but complementary domains:
- The geopolitical and domestic factors driving secure and successful small states.
- Best practices in fostering a common purpose and the social cohesion of globalised, pluralistic societies.
- Best practices in promoting societal adaptive capacity, resilience and innovation through policy tools including but not limited to national security and history education.
Apart from producing research for RSIS and other academic audiences, and teaching on the Masters programme in RSIS, NSSP researchers are also invited to share their insights with public officers in seminars or training courses, with a view to enhancing the academic rigour of such course content. In addition, seminars involving thought leaders from Singapore and elsewhere on the subject of the governance and security challenges facing city-states are organised by NSSP at periodic intervals.
