About This Book

These 17 papers explore the rationale and activities of The Working Committee, an informal grouping of Singaporeans who in 1998/9 worked together to identify and mobilise present and future roles for civil society activities. The overview of Singapore's civil society includes some reference to the pre-1959 period and experience of the Family Planning Association 1949-1968, AWARE -- Association of Women for Action and Research, the Nature Society, SPUR, Forum Theatre, SINTERCOM and associated personalities. Also reviewed in this volume is TWC's own experience, including foreign funding, internal disagreements, the uses of IT, and the process of building trust. The final part of the book examines future scenarios and highlights the state-centric (of present day Singapore), the people-centric (of USA, Taiwan) and the hybrid, a possible compromise which is perceived as likely to be largely stultifying. This is a thoughtful and stimulating study of considerable importance for anyone concerned with Singapore's future.
