50 Years of Social Issues in Singapore

The social context of Singapore is changing rapidly, and understanding how people think, feel and behave in various situations has become a key driver of effectiveness in addressing social issues. 50 Years of Social Issues in Singapore provides a comprehensive review and examination of various social issues at multiple levels of analysis including the individual, group and society.

Willie Cheng and Sharifah Mohamed wrote a chapter, “50 years of doing good in Singapore” to review the history and identify emerging trends of the social sector such as demand for greater accountability, business-social convergence, dominant government, rise of advocacy, and faith-based groups.
