This new study relates the Singapore experience to wider debates about, and theories of, social policy, and shows how the overall strategy, and the social policy parts of it, have been remarkably successful.Social Engineering in Singapore demonstrates how, from independence in 1959 onwards, social policy in Singapore, which has provided a range of excellent benefits in the areas of housing, healthcare, education and social security, has in fact been a key part of a larger overall project in state building and economic growth undertaken by Singapore's ruling People's Action Party.
