According to Prof. Theseira in order to attain this, it is imperative that the government is straightforward on sharing official data and be more receptive and compliant of research findings that contravene official viewpoints and policies.

“We are frankly too small for experts from elsewhere to want to study us thoroughly. And in any case, we should never depend on them,” the professor said. He likewise noted that Singaporean academics are still confronted with different barriers when they study issues that affect the country.– Singaporeans lacked access to data from the government which impedes their aptitude to boost their academic reliability and standing.

While the professor admitted that he is venturing “dangerously close into political territory,” Prof. Theseira reminded the House that the country’s leadership is not always dependent on the ruling People’s Action Party.
