194 Rigid Singapore

In the late twentieth century Singapore became one of the Asian ‘tigers,’ combining rapid economic growth with an authoritarian regime. Upon becoming independent in 1965, the International Security Act introduced against communists following the Second World War remained in effect and was used in 1987 against activists supporting the Workers’ Party, as noted by the Belgian Comité Malaisie Singapour. The IISH holds a wealth of important documentation collections of action committees dedicated to addressing the circumstances in countries rife with conflicts.
