"The Singapore Perspectives" series is a yearly publication that provides critical analysis of emerging trends and issues Singapore faces in terms of social, economic and political development. It is a quick and essential reference for understanding the broad policy discussions that animate thought leaders, policy-makers and the public in the country during the immediate period or that are likely to do so in the short and medium term. This volume brings together articles by Singapore authors who shared their experiences and insights on Singapore economics, politics and society at the Singapore Perspectives 2011 Conference, held in Raffles City Convention Centre on 16th January 2011. Topics covered in the volume include Singapore as a global city, nation-state, the disadvantaged, theatre and Singapore spirit from an immigrant's perspective. Co-published by the think-tank, the Institute of Policy Studies, Singapore, this is a useful publication for those with an interest in understanding the governance challenges facing a small, highly globalised economy and nation-state, or those who want a quick feel of the pulse of Singapore.
