Towards a Model for Engaged Governance: Citizen Conversations for a Participatory Democracy

Feature Choice


I wish to dedicate this Feature Choice article to Mr Lee Kuan Yew, the founding father of Singapore who built a nation where there was none. Singapore woke to the news of his passing on 23 March 2015, coincidentally the morning this article was completed. Mr Lee Hsien Loong, current PM of Singapore, shared in a national address that morning that Mr Lee Kuan Yew ‘gave of himself in full measure to Singapore. Even as we mourn his passing, let us also remember his spirit to keep Singapore exceptional.’ Thank you for showing us that with dedication and hard work, we can create miracles for ourselves and our future generations.
