12 Sep Diversity & Inclusion: The Role of Social Harmony in National Security
In a world where there have been increasing numbers of terror attacks, Singapore has had the good fortune to remain safe and secure – so far. However, Singapore’s leaders have repeatedly warned that such an attack might someday strike Singapore’s shores. It is not a question of “if”, but “when”. Singapore’s long-standing emphasis on racial and religious harmony has played a major role in keeping the nation safe and secure. But is there more that can be done to strengthen the bonds between communities in our society?
