NUS scholars speak at Washington University about Singapore housing policy

Two scholars from the National University of Singapore (NUS) spoke December 2 at Washington University in St. Louis about the roles that housing policies play in the well-being of Singaporeans. Singapore’s inclusive policies provide opportunities for home ownership, community integration and stability, and economic security.

Chia Ngee Choon, associate professor of economics and co-director of the Next Age Institute (NAI), and Wong Yunn Chii, associate professor and head of the Architecture Department at NUS, made presentations at the seminar “Housing Policy and Community Stability” at the Brown School.

Bruce Lindsey, dean of architecture at Washington University, moderated, and Michael Sherraden, co-director of NAI and the George Warren Brown Distinguished University Professor at Washington University, served as the respondent.

The event was hosted by NAI and The Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts. Co-hosts included the Harvey A. Friedman Center for Aging and the McDonnell International Scholars Academy.
