Abstract: Singapore's national conversations have focused as much attention to issues of the Singaporean identity, national values, rootedness and the sense of belonging, as they have to bread-and-butter issues of economic growth, jobs and housing. This ground-up interest in the national narrative m ay be a reaction to Singapore's drive to be a global, networked and open city that points to an emerging tension with its nation-building enterprise.
