Singapore

In 2012, after many years in which individual researchers in the Global Cities Institute had done research in Singapore, the Institute decided to name Singapore as a focus city. This was done, linked to RMIT’s overall strategy of engagement on partner cities. As part of this process the Institute has agreed to collaborate with the Centre for Liveable Cities in Singapore.

Chris Hudson will lead the Institute’s engagement in Singapore.
