Kam-yee Law illustrates how, in early 2002, a Muslim headscarf incident in Singapore triggered a debate within the country. The incident reveals the plight of Singapore's Malay Muslims in terms of social and ethnic integration, and the growing lack of political openness since the late 1980s. The situation seems to be worsening in the international context of post-Asian economic crisis and post-September 11th anti-terrorism measures.Development (2003) 46, 107–111. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110429
