Geo-Spatial Study on Neighbourhoods and Attitudes to Immigrants


This study examines how the social and built environment influence attitudes to immigrants, community trust, and the formation of social capital. Based on a national survey involving more than 3,000 Singaporeans and permanent residents, we examine the geo-spatial connections between neighbourhood social norms and Singaporeans’ acceptance of immigrants and immigration policies. The study will also uncover the types of facilities and physical features that can make a positive change in perceptions, and those that may exacerbate tensions.
