Abstract

Singapore's strategy toward the great powers is the story of how a vulnerable Lilliputian state has endeavoured to combine the use of astute stratagem and skilful diplomacy to manage its asymmetric relations with the big powers. By borrowing the strength of the political heavyweights to manoeuvre through the swift currents, the city-state reduces the risk of capsizing in the rough sea of international relations.
