The Centre of Excellence for National Security (CENS) organised a Workshop on ‘The Age of Rages’ on 26 and 27 February 2019 at Marina Mandarin Singapore. The CENS Workshop was intended to: a) enhance our understanding of rage from a multi-disciplinary perspective; b) examine structural, cognitive and cultural drivers of rage, and c) explore potential solutions for positive change.
The Workshop consisted of four panels. The first panel looked at various structural reasons and sites of rage. It was followed by a panel looking at forms of populism in Europe and the US. The third panel looked at rage from a historical perspective. The last panel discussed rage online and offline.
Twelve speakers from institutions in Australia, France, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States shared their insights. Workshop participants included members of the Singapore civil service, the private sector, and academia involved in examining race relations, religious conflict, hate speech and other national security topics.
This report summarises key points from the panel speakers’ presentations. Key takeaways made by participants during the syndicate discussions and by CENS staff are included at the end of each panel section.
