IPS Commons was launched in 2012. It is a platform to promote and showcase rational discussion of public policy ideas in Singapore, so as to expand the intellectual space and increase the quality of public engagement on national issues. IPS Commons is managed by the Institute of Policy Studies (IPS), an autonomous think-tank at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore. IPS studies and generates public policy ideas across the following areas:
- Arts, Culture and Media
- Demography and Family
- Economics and Business
- Politics and Governance
- Society and Identity
IPS is also home to the IPS Social Lab, an independent centre for social indicators research.
The essays published on IPS Commons are authored by IPS researchers and the Institute’s network of academics, policymakers and social commentators. Contributions are welcome and further details are available here.
