The Politics of Policy-Making in Singapore by Ho Khai Leong

The Author is a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Political Science, National University of Singapore. He has also taught in the Master in Public Policy programme at NUS.

The Politics of Policy-Making in Singapore offers a critical analysis of the political dynamics that shape Singapore's public policies. It suggests that policy-making in Singapore involves a complex process of interaction among political institutions, and that the distribution of power among these institutions is hierachical and precarious. Thus, the book argues that the contestation of political interests occupies a central position in these stratified interactions, and this has been largely responsible for the types of policies and their impact.

Overall Rating: 9/10
