Reviews and Features

"Immigration in Singapore ... provides an important insight into how Singapore developed post-1965 particularly with respect to its population strategy.' -- Michiel Baas, Research Fellow, Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore for theNewsletter, International Institute for Asian Studies, No. 71, Summer 2015

"[This] book offers several important perspectives for understanding how Singapore becomes an exemplary success story in the global South as a striving city-state with far-sighted strategic policies for nurturing the human capitals and human talents. The book is a nice read for the scholars in diaspora studies and social reforms." - Anup Kumar Das in Diaspora Studies

Immigration in Singapore

This study traces the socio-political effects of immigration on Singapore and its population, a topic that has been the subject of intense debate in the nation as its population grows increasingly diverse. Beyond the logic of economic imperatives, the book aims to explore the larger consequences of taking in large number of immigrants, and its analysis should appeal to scholars of migration, social change, and public policy.
