A Realist primer into Singapore’s Foreign Policy – Bilahari Kausikan’s lectures

Mr Bilahari’s views on local politicians aside, his lectures on international affairs read like a primer with a realist slant. More significantly, the average Singaporean might do well to understand that this same realist perspective informs foreign policy decision making in Singapore’s MFA, and in the higher echelons of the Singapore government, especially considering how consistent the Singapore government’s foreign policy stance has been between senior leaders (read Lee Kuan Yew’s book on Hard Truths and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s interview with TIME). Understanding Mr Bilahari’s lectures gives insights into the mind of the MFA diplomat, and for those who seek to challenge his views, provides a foundation on how to approach foreign policy debates from a Singaporean point of view.
