Title: Social integration or non-integration : Indonesian students in Singapore
Authors: Le, Trieu Hai Nam
Keywords: DRNTU::Social sciences::Sociology
Issue Date: 2014
Abstract: The increasing presence and influx of foreigners have garnered considerable discussion and debate in the social and political arenas of Singapore. However, limited attention has been turned specifically onto the presence of foreign students and their lived experiences in Singapore. Therefore, I have chosen to study a group of Indonesian students to examine firstly how the Singapore education, with the Global Schoolhouse initiative, has been established to attract the brightest minds around the world. Secondly, adopting the definition of social integration as gaining access to desirable resources in society, I aimed to find out whether the Indonesian students have integrated in Singapore. And finally, I investigated how transnational living affected the students’ sense of identity and future prospects.
