This August marks not only the month of Singapore’s independence 52 years ago but also the formation of ASEAN on 8 August 1967. This special edition of Singapore and the World celebrates the crossroads of Singapore’s national history with regional and global history. Professor Tan Tai Yong retraces Singapore’s progress from a Crown Colony to an independent nation in 1963, against the background of a global climate defined by the polarisation between capitalist and communist countries, commonly referred to as the Cold War. The lecture presents the geo-political considerations which influenced the political developments that led to the independence of Singapore, highlighting an important period in Singapore and the region’s history that continues to resonate today.
