CNM joins the NUS and Singapore community to mourn the loss of Lee Kuan Yew, the founding father of modern-day Singapore. Through his life and in his leadership, Lee Kuan Yew demonstrated the idea that communication is a powerful resource in bringing about change, inaugurating on the world stage an “Asian values” conversation that would serve as a harbinger for the change to come. He seriously introduced the conversation on culture in the global arena, seeding the spaces for other imaginations. We are grateful for his leadership that inspires us to imagine different possibilities. We express our sincere condolences to PM Lee, Mrs. Lee, and the Lee family.
