About The Institute of Policy Studies

The Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) was established in 1988 as an independent think-tank to study and generate public policy ideas in Singapore. IPS became an autonomous research centre of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore in 2008. Today, IPS continues to analyse public policy, build bridges between thought leaders, and communicate its findings to a wide audience. The Institute examines issues of critical national interest across a variety of fields, and studies the attitudes and aspirations of Singaporeans through surveys of public perception. It adopts a multi-disciplinary approach in its analyses and takes the long-term view in its strategic deliberation and research.

Managing the Challenges of an Ageing Society: This research programme analyses the social and economic impact of Singapore’s ageing society, ultra-low fertility, longer life and health expectancy, and migration. It examines changes to family structures, employment, entrepreneurship, productivity, savings, and investment, and their policy implications.

Inequality and Social Mobility: This research programme examines developments in this area, and considers measures to limit the negative trends.

Managing Diversities: This research programme tracks our growing diversity and its implications for national identity, social cohesion and capital, community resilience and governance.

Governance of a Global City-State: This research programme seeks out useful ideas and comparative experience that can be realistically applied or creatively adapted to help policymakers in the key sectors of the country build towards sustainable economic and social vibrancy.
