Abstract: Compared to the unsuccessful resettlement experiences of many developing countries since 1960s, urban and rural slums in Singapore were redeveloped with minimal resistance. A review of current literature on Singapore?s housing experience reveals a total of eleven causal variables argued to be the reasons behind Singapore?s success. However, there were no substantiated discourses on how these eleven causal variables influenced the outcome of a low resistance to resettlement to public housing in Singapore between 1965 and 1985. This paper addresses this literature gap by presenting a study that shows how the eleven factors shaped the outcome of low resistance: the totality of factors constituted a `clumsy? approach which avoided the pitfalls to a viable resettlement to public housing program - a program that catered to the multitude of resettler preferences and deterred the realization of any preference to resist.
