This chapter explores communitarianism and single-party dominance in Singapore. It argues that communitariasnism as a political ideology is a discursive resource available to all contesting parties. In Singapore, after nearly forty years of People’s Action Party (PAP) rule, the positive outcomes in various areas of social life of the logic of ‘governance by groups’ will have a lasting impact on Singaporeans. Political parties seeking to contest political power could do worse than adopting the communitarian orientation of the PAP.
