As Singapore enters its 50th year of independence, it is a good time to reflect on its past as well as look to the future. 50 Years of Singapore-Europe Relations: Celebrating Singapore's Connections with Europe is one such contribution to the wide collection of books commemorating Singapore's 50th birthday. The essays and articles in this edited volume capture historical moments, reveal the heartfelt wishes and thoughtful comments of Europeans who have made Singapore their home, chronicle some of the long-standing partnerships and ponder the future challenges of Singapore.

This unique book contains a wide range of essays and articles reflecting on the strong connections that Singapore enjoys with Europe, not only at the official level, but also through the contributions that Europeans and European companies have made — and continue to make — which enrich Singaporean society. These essays provide a kaleidoscope of views on Singapore — they explore how close ties and partnerships are forged between nations, how businesses see Singapore as a trustworthy partner and place to invest and establish roots, and, at a more personal level, the articles also present different perspectives on the strengths, and at times, the weaknesses of Singapore as viewed through the eyes of Europeans who live and work in Singapore and consider it as their home.

In commemorating Singapore's 50th birthday, this book will add to the understanding of the richness and diversity of Singapore society, and help readers appreciate and reflect on how openness and connectivity have contributed to the success of Singapore in its first 50 years.

Dr YEO Lay Hwee is Director of the European Union Centre in Singapore since 2009. She is also Council Secretary and Senior Research Fellow at the Singapore Institute of International Affairs (SIIA), Adjunct Fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS).

She is also a member of the Scientific Expert Panel of the Southeast Asia– EU Net, a research network funded under the EU's Framework Programme 7, and editor of the Asia– Europe Journal.

An international relations expert, her research interests revolve around comparative regionalism; Asia—Europe relations in general, and in particular, relations between the European Union and ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations); and the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) process. She participates actively both in policy dialogues and academic workshops and conferences, and contributes regularly to academic publications and commentaries in media.

Barnard TURNER was born in the London suburbs and came to Singapore in 1989. He has taught at NUS since this time, and for a period was Senior Fellow at the EU Centre here. He has taught across a range of disciplines in the arts and social sciences, including English, European and American Literature, Theatre Studies and European Union studies. He worked on an ASEF project about Views of Europe in ASEAN and has contributed several articles and research papers to this field. He has published one book, edited another (also with Yeo Lay Hwee) and an issue of the Asia Europe Journal on comparisons between the Baltic and the South China Sea. He has published some 50 papers on a range of topics within the disciplines mentioned above.
