- About the Author
These thirty-eight essays by the professors and research fellows of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy is dedicated to the tenth anniversary of the School. The core theme of the essays is governance in Asia and what its governments and peoples are doing for the public good. As Asia rises, its policymakers and citizens, and indeed the rest of the world, are increasingly asking how this dynamic region is making public policy, what we can learn from that exciting, often turbulent process, and how Asians can do better. The School's diverse and international group of scholars have written a set of informal, provocative, and passionate essays about governance in Asia – its past, present, and future – and why they study it. The volume – a candid, engaging act of transparency and disclosure – is also an invitation to join the conversation on the problems and promise of Asia and the larger dialogue on public policy and policy research in a globalized world.
The Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore, was founded in 2004. Its mission is to "Educate and inspire current and future generations of leaders to raise the standards of governance in Asia, improve the lives of its people and contribute to the transformation of the region." It has sought to fulfil its mission through its teaching programmes, its research, and its outreach to the community as well as to international audiences and partners.
