Mandatory Death Penalty for Drug Offences

“In relation to our project on the mandatory death penalty in Singapore which is traditionally analysed through the lens of the law and criminal justice policy, social science provides an explanatory framework into the economic and societal motivations of such a policy."

In the second term of the 2021-2022 academic year, students in the introductory sociology course "Understanding Societies" carried out group projects: to produce presentation recordings that examine contemporary social issues by using Karl Marx's and Max Weber's theories. The purpose of these projects is to reach out to younger students (e.g., in Junior Colleges, Polytechnics, High Schools) in Singapore and beyond and show them how sociology can offer fresh perspectives on our own lives and societies -- and how they might be transformed.
