Inequality

Introduction


There are three objectives to this Wiki site:
  • First, to keep the discourse on inequality in Singapore going;
  • Second, to focus on events and writings about the (perceived) problem, with the broader and longer-term goal of organising these events and writings; as well as
  • Third, to moot and debate policy recommendations and to promote community resources.

This Wiki site has been populated with some predetermined sections - Events, Articles and Readings, Policy Ideas, and Community Projects - but users are encouraged to not only add content and updates, but to also amend the structure wherever applicable. In the even longer-term, the continuation of a community, ground-up initiative would ideally allow for engagement with the government too. For now, should you have questions or contributions, email us at clarencekh[a]gmail.com and jinyao.guan.yin.miao[a]gmail.com.

Articles and Readings


There are two sub-sections. For a start, when including articles and readings from different sources, include the headline, a link, the source (i.e. name of the newspaper, online site, or journal), and a synopsis of 50 words or fewer (if possible). The initial aim is to populate this section with as many articles and readings as possible, before organising them into a directory, thematically.

Articles and Readings in the Mainstream and Online Media

  • Format: Headline (link), source. A synopsis of 50 words or fewer.

Academic Articles, Research Articles, and Books

Community Projects


The focus is on community projects which Singaporeans could be involved in. Share the name of the organisation, a synopsis of the organisation's work (with an emphasis on inequality and the class divide) in 100 words of fewer, and a link to find out more or to get involved.
