Seminar on Internet regulatory reform

Organised by the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, Nanyang Technological University

"The job of a citizen is to keep his mouth open" -- Gunter Grass

Are Singaporeans satisfied with the state of internet regulation as existing? If not, what changes do we wish to see and how can a bottom-up desire for reform translate into policy review?

Can Singapore afford the political and social costs of free speech? Is there a contradiction between wanting freedom for political speech and controls over social speech?

Is technology really in the driver’s seat? Are governments powerless in the face of a global internet?

  • Guest speaker: Mr Arun Mahizhnan, Dep. Dir. Institute of Policy Studies
  • Presentations by members of the Bloggers’ Group for Internet Deregulation
  • Chaired by Asst Prof Cherian George, Wee Kim Wee School, NTU
