In an invited commentary, SMU director of Behavioural Sciences Institute Professor David Chan noted that although the negative emotions that dominated 2013 have led to some positive outcomes, emotions cannot be the foundation for society’s progress. Professor Chan suggested that, moving forward, Singapore should focus on three shared values (integrity, fairness, social harmony) and three guiding principles (rule of law, accountability, people-centricity).
