Hidden Communities
Dr Tan Lai Yong

There are various 'hidden communities' in Singapore that do not gain much public attention but whose members require special consideration from society. People with disabilities , children with learning difficulties, the elderly or migrant workers are among them. They face distinct challenges to live independent and productive lives.

Each semester, the module focuses on one specific group and examines that group's challenges, and best practices in Singaporean and international contexts. Engaging with hidden communities in Singapore is one of the key features of understanding global issues in a local context, so-called 'Glocalisation' (globalisation + localisation) to form active citizenship in a healthy society.
