Governing Global-City Singapore: Legacies and Futures After Lee Kuan Yew

Book coverWhat are some plausible futures of Singapore in the post-Lee Kuan Yew age? To answer this, Kenneth Paul Tan, author of Governing Global-City Singapore (2017), and his panelists Donald Low and Alvin Pang, will consider: (1) the durability of Singapore's one-party dominant system; (2) the evolution of meritocracy and pragmatism as fundamental values in its public administration; (3) new dynamics in civil society and the issues that animate it; (4) the government's continuing efforts to engage with the public; and (5) the contest over history and national narratives. Come to this launch of the paperback version of Governing Global-City Singapore to hear what a political scientist, economist, and poet have to say about the increasingly complex conditions and, within them, the challenges of maintaining state hegemony while securing a pre-eminent position for Singapore in the global economic order.
