Abstract: 新加坡为了确保国家经济的稳定发展和保持国际上的竞争力,采取了一系列的措施解决人口问题。政府推出“外来人才政策”,欢迎世界各地的人才到新加坡来,其中来自中国大陆的移民占多数。而这却引起部分本地人的担忧与不满。虽然中国新移民和本地华人同为华族,但他们之间却存在着一定的差异。也因此促使这两个社群之间产生冲突与矛盾,关系变得紧张。众人皆知,族群矛盾问题在新加坡是一个高度“敏感”的话题。本地大众媒体也尽可能避开讨论它。不过,引起笔者注意的是,新传媒却一反常态在2011年制作了电视剧《四个门牌一个梦》,正面谈论本地人与新移民之间的冲突问题。这是为何呢?本文首先分析《四个门牌一个梦》所呈现的内容,然后再将其与相关文献材料、报章报道等第二手资料进行对比,从而论证这部电视剧实为政府的“发言”工具。主要的作用包括:(一)平息本地人民的不满情绪。(二)推广政府的“双向融合对策”。 In order to ensure stable economic development, and maintain international competitiveness, Singapore has adopted a series of measures and strategies to tackle the population issues. The government introduced the “Foreign Talent Policy”, welcoming the entry of talents from all over the world to Singapore. Among them, immigrants from Mainland China made up the majority. However, the immigration policy has caused unhappiness and dissatisfaction among the local Singaporeans. Despite being both of the same ethnicity, the New Chinese immigrants and Singaporean Chinese have some characteristics that set them apart. And these differences have generated tensions and led to conflicts between the two communities. As it is known, the issue of ethnic group conflicts is regarded as a highly “sensitive” topic in Singapore. Hence, the local mass media would tend to avoid the discussion of it. But Mediacorp “unusually” produced a TV Drama series Love Thy Neighbour in 2011, which discussed and showcased the conflict between the New Chinese immigrants and the Singaporean Chinese. Why is this so? This paper will first examine the content presented in Love Thy Neighbour. Then compare it with the relevant text, newspaper articles, and other secondary sources, with the aim to demonstrate Love Thy Neighbour as a tool for the government. Its main functions include: quelling the discontent of the Singaporeans and promoting the government’s “Two-way Integration Strategy”.
