This essay started with this commentary on my Freedom From The Press blog.
Several legal scholars have written about Singapore’s defamation laws. See, for example:
- David Tan, “Whither the Autochthonous Narrative of Freedom of Speech in Singapore?: A Guide to Defaming Politicians and Scandalising Judges in Singapore” in Jaclyn Neo (ed), Constitutional Interpretation in Singapore: Theory and Practice (Routledge, 2016) 210-253.
For an analysis of “thick” and “thin” conceptions of the rule of law with regard to Singapore, see:
- Jack Tsen-Ta Lee, “Shall the Twain Never Meet? Competing Narratives and Discourses of the Rule of Law in Singapore“, Singapore Journal of Legal Studies, 2012, (1), 298-330.
