Social cohesion is more than about race or religion: SMU president
Speaking at the International Conference on Cohesive Societies (ICCS) at the Raffles City Convention Centre on Tuesday (Sep 6), SMU President Professor Lily Kong said social cohesion is not left to fate and chance in Singapore, with much attention focused on building racial and religious harmony. She explained that beyond these, migration and multiculturalism, social and economic inequality, the digital divide and inter-generational relationships are also important factors and potential fault lines impacting a socially cohesive society. She added that more than ever, there is a critical need now to build social cohesion and the resilience that accompanies it.
