LumiNation 2020 - Imagining Migration and Migrants in Singapore
Moving away from a focus on economic drivers, migration scholars increasingly recognise the power of imagination in influencing the migration decision. The first half of this talk by Anju Mary Paul explores the power of shifting mental maps in shaping how potential migrants rate and rank different destination options, discussing how different groups of migrants think about Singapore before they arrive and also after their arrival. The second half of this talk considers the power of imagination in constructing the figure of the migrant, highlighting how different groups of migrants to Singapore have been classified in the collective imagination, making some seem more worthy than others and some groups more easy to integrate into the Singapore identity.
