Case study of a vulnerable population in Singapore’s urban space

SCO201 - Space, Place, People and the City

5 Pages Essays / Projects Year Uploaded: 2021

In the assignment, you are required to write a presentation script and create a recorded presentation (up to 7 minutes) for a lay audience on inequality (Unit 2)and inclusivity(Unit 4) through the case study of a vulnerable population in Singapore’s urban space (Unit 3). Vulnerability refers to groups who have been disadvantaged due to current urban planning or ways of organising the city whether intentional or unintentional. Vulnerable groups change over time, work with other actors, and are part of the city although they are often marginalised or excluded from decision-making. In Unit 2, we discuss how inequality in cities can be observed in social groups through economic inequality or unequal access education, welfare services and basic housing. Since the example of migrant workers in urban spaces is already discussed in the iSG, your team should not choose migrant workers as your case study. In Unit 4, we discuss how inclusivity in cities refers to the inclusion of social groups in civil society as demonstrated in their participation in urban planning, welfare services or community-based programs. These two concepts will help you frame your presentation. You are required to reference scholarly sources on inequality and inclusivity as well as newspaper articles, maps, and national data to support your argument on how the vulnerable group fares in Singapore. The following are the components on which this assignment will be marked:
