The Little Nation That Can: Singapore’s Foreign Relations and Diplomacy


The Little Nation That Can: Singapore’s Foreign Relations and Diplomacy is a compilation of essays and commentaries on Singapore’s foreign relations and diplomacy.

Among the commentaries is one by our Executive Director Jean Tan where she shares how ordinary citizens and other non-state actors have a bigger role to play when it comes to diplomacy.

Her article was part of a series of essays and commentaries on Singapore’s foreign relations and diplomacy compiled by the National University of Singapore Society.

Not only does the book present Singapore’s relationship with key institutions, it also provides a history of the relationship Singapore has with various countries, an assessment of the current relationship and the projection of that relationship.

SIF Board Members Ambassador Ong Keng Yong, K Kesavapany and Lee Huay Leng also contributed to the publication.
