Key Research Areas

As Singapore matures, the social issues faced by our society become more complex and interlinked. At the same time, Singapore also faces an impending demographic shift and increasing income inequality. In response to these challenges, SSR will focus on three main research areas which we believe encapsulate the current and future needs of the people:

  1. Low-wage workers and their families;
  2. Children and youth from disadvantaged backgrounds; and
  3. Various types of elderly and their service needs
