Symposium on Religion : The Sacred in a Global City (2007 : Singapore)
School of Humanities and Social Sciences
As the secular state of Singapore enters the 21st century, religions and religiosity seem to be going through a phase of revival in the country. As Singapore continues in its relentless effort to become a ‘global city’, the evolution of the country’s religious scene is now even more deeply entwined with developments in the rest of the world. Meanwhile, the religious practices of new migrants have enriched the city-state’s already fertile grounds of religious diversity, infusing new dynamism and complexity to the country’s religious landscape.
