Patrick Daniel is the Institute of Policy Studies' 11th S R Nathan Fellow for the Study of Singapore. This book is an edited collection of his three IPS-Nathan Lectures, delivered in February and March 2022, and includes highlights of his question-and-answer segments with our audience.

Mr Daniel analyses the evolution of Singapore's legacy media from colonial times and examines how the country's unique history has shaped its media laws. In recent years, the Internet disrupted the business models of the legacy media and forced them to reinvent themselves in order to compete with big tech platforms. As for the proliferation of wilful misinformation and digital fraud around the world, the book examines whether the Internet and social media require more effective global governance. Mr Daniel concludes by looking into the future and outlining desired futures for Singapore and its legacy media.

The IPS-Nathan Lecture series was launched in 2014 as part of the S R Nathan Fellowship for the Study of Singapore, named after Singapore's sixth and longest-serving president. It seeks to advance public understanding and discussion of issues of critical national interest for Singapore.
