Light on a Hill: The ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute Story 1968–2018
About the publication
This book commemorates ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute’s achievements over the past 50 years. It illustrates the Institute’s many changes and phases of development, under the illustrious leadership and staff at every level – board of trustees, directors, researchers and support staff.
The title of the book is derived from a quote by Prof Hal Hill, H W Arndt Professor Emeritus of Southeast Asian Economies at the Australian National University and former ISEAS International Advisory Panel member. In an article on the Institute for a 2015 publication, he described ISEAS as a “light on a hill”, saying: “I look forward to many more decades of ISEAS as a vital and uniquely important regional and global public good. There is still nothing else like it in the world, and the mission statement is as relevant today as it was at the time of its founding.”
