General Election 2020: Academic Insights

30 June 2020

As we head towards the end of Nomination Day here in Singapore, we thought to share with our readers an excellent email resource provided by AcademiaSG.

Please visit this link to access AcademiaSG’s latest email (30 June) which provides more academic views and articles for you to read on Singapore’s elections.

Foreword by AcademiaSG’s editors

Singapore’s General Election on 10 July may have a broadly predictable outcome, but the way the campaign plays out as well as the final tallies will generate endless conversations — and months if not years of academic analysis. This newsletter, going out on Nomination Day, is dedicated to GE2020. We are especially happy to present 20 for 20: A GE Reading List of twenty book chapters and journal articles offering in-depth looks at Singapore’s political system, its political parties, and past voting behaviour. Some are new publications, examining Singapore’s democratic backsliding since GE2015, and the 4th Generation leadership, for example. Others are older but still highly relevant – like a 2011 article on why election rallies (banned this year) have been such a special part of Singapore’s elections. We are delighted that their authors and publishers have made them available for free download, in support of Academia.SG’s mission to bring scholarly research into the public sphere.

Pink Dot 2020 – MARUAH joins all LBGTQA persons to ask for a repeal of S377A

26 June 2020

Join us for Pink Dot 12!

24 June 2020

Sharing an email in support of our friends at Pink Dot

Hi friends, 

Hope everyone is keeping well in these final days of Phase 1. Pink Dot 12 is just over a week away! I wanted to drop a quick reminder that there are 3 ways you can participate this year:

1) Light up

This June, turn your homes pink to show a visible sign of solidarity and support for your LGBTQ+ neighbours, who may not be able to light up their own homes. Unfortunately our pink lights are out of stock but you can still order them on Shopee (estimated 1 week delivery) or get creative! Wrapping fairy lights in pink plastic bags does the trick very nicely!

2) Sign up

This year, our formation is going digital! Be part of our first ever digital Pink Dot formation by checking-in online at loveliveshere.pinkdot.sg and leaving a personal message of support.

3) Show up

Join our special livestream event to celebrate Pink Dot 12 with an exciting line-up of performances and video premieres. Head to pinkdot.sg to tune in and chat with fellow viewers at 8pm on the 27th of June. Our digital formation will be unveiled at the end of the program.
You can also get in the mood by posting one of our Instagram filters created by some very talented community contributors. Please help spread the word through your networks and we look forward to you joining us for our livestream on the 27th! :)


Happy pride month everyone!
