Should Singapore rejoin the UNESCO?

  • Alexander Haentzschel

During that time, the idea of the “New World Information Order” was a major topic in the UNESCO. In this article the author analysis Singapore’s stake in this discussion, the reasons for the withdrawal and asks, why Singapore has still not rejoined the UNESCO, although the international flow of news is no longer an issue and the USA as well as the UK already came back.
