Authors: Kwan, Melissa Rachel

Issue Date: 2019
Abstract: Mobility as a term within Singapore’s political, social and academic discourse has predominantly focused on two aspects – physical mobility and socio-economic mobility. It is used to describe a wide phenomena of movement across society, serving as a basis for setting national aspirations and developmental goals. These discussions highlight how there are certain ideologies surrounding mobility, privileging and assigning value to certain types of movement over others. Through eleven in-depth qualitative interviews, this project investigates how young adults in Singapore construct their concept of their mobility, why it is significant from a ground-up perspective and how it draws on while constituting ideological ideas. Mobility functions as a mental tool for young adults to explain and establish control over their lives, as well as their relationship with the external environment, thus structuring the way that they perceive their reality.
