|Title:||Legal Communitarianism and Pandemic Regulation in Singapore||Authors:||Thio, Li-Ann||Issue Date:||1-Feb-2023||Publisher:||NOMOS||Citation:||Thio, Li-Ann (2023-02-01). Legal Communitarianism and Pandemic Regulation in Singapore. Experimental Law: The Rule of Law and the Regulation of the Corona Pandemic in Europe, : 383-440. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||This essay investigates Covid-19 pandemic regulation within the context of the Singapore polity between 2020-2022, which practices a brand of legal communitarianism. This focuses on regulating and shaping behaviour not only by the methods of liberal legalism (sanctions, courts and law) but through resort to soft norms, foregrounding trust, solidarity and deploying nudges to bring about desired conduct. It unpacks how communitarianism may manifest as 'communitarian as solidarity' which operates in the key of persuasion and hortatory expectations, and how a turn to more authoritarian methods reflects a brand of 'communitarianism as muscular majoritarianism.'||Source Title:||Experimental Law: The Rule of Law and the Regulation of the Corona Pandemic in Europe,||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/236998||ISBN:||9783756005116|
