This course focuses on the evolution of Singapore in the regional and global contexts since 1945. It will discuss various factors--institutional, cultural, socio-political and international?that have shaped the trajectory of Singapore over the past seven decades. The successful story of Singapore`s economic development will be understood within the domestic multi-ethnic mosaic and complex regional relationships. It is the interplay of these forces that underscores the emergence and challenges of a cosmopolitan global city-state with an emerging national identity.
