Singapore and Multilateral Governance: Securing Our Future
Dr Noeleen Heyzer is the Institute of Policy Studies' 10th S R Nathan Fellow for the Study of Singapore. This book is an edited collection of her three IPS-Nathan Lectures, delivered in November and December 2021, and includes highlights of her question-and-answer segments with our audience.Dr Heyzer examines how Singapore can continue to contribute to multilateral governance amid 21st century global challenges. Highly dependent on multilateral governance, Singapore has to engage the region and contribute to the multilateral global order. Dr Heyzer highlights the need for Singapore to build a mindset of 'solidarity as self-interest', contribute to a normative future that is equitable, inclusive and sustainable, and rethink our current multilateral governance framework. What does a renewed multilateralism look like? Can Singapore become an epicentre for this new multilateralism? And critically, how can we secure our common future and shape what we become as a nation?The IPS-Nathan Lecture series was launched in 2014 as part of the S R Nathan Fellowship for the Study of Singapore, named after Singapore's sixth and longest-serving president. It seeks to advance public understanding and discussion of issues of critical national interest for Singapore.

Gender, Poverty and Sustainable Development
Extrait de la couverture : "We are living in a world where resource depletion is increasing by the day and where the gap between rich and poor is steadily widening. women have been particularly affected by this crisis. We have in our midst 1.3 billion absolute poor, seventy per cent of whom are women. While this ecological and social crisis is deepening, economic growth is becoming the central preoccupation of businesses and governments world-wide. The Asian abd Pacific region, in particular, is seen as a showcase of miracle economies for other regions to emulate. But is increased growth the solution to poverty and environmental degradation ? Regional case studies documented in this book illustrate the human and environmental costs of such growth. This book shows how economic growth and impoverishement are two sides of the same coin. Money gives the power to buy up the resources of the world. The result ? Twenty per cent of the world's population consume eighty per cent of the world's resources. This leads not just to environmental degradation, but also to widespread rural poverty as local communities, especially women, lose their livehood resources. In a world of finite resources, the growth of some leads to the deprivation of others. This situation is both unsustainable and inequitable. A holisitc strategyy of transformation is needed. women have a very high stake in engendering changes that wold lead to a better human future. This book aims to be one step in that direction."
