The Peter Lim Professorship in Peace Studies
In 2014, Peter Lim donated S$3 million to Nanyang Technological University (NTU) to endow a new professorship in peace studies.
Based at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS), NTU’s graduate school of international affairs, the Peter Lim Professorship in Peace Studies provides for a top global expert who can lead the development of RSIS’ peace studies curriculum and research strategies as part of the school’s Studies in Inter-Religious Relations in Plural Societies programme.
We have enjoyed decades of peace because of the harmonious relations amongst Singapore’s different communities. But the world’s many conflicts remind us that we cannot take this peace for granted. I hope that my donation can bring together distinguished scholars and thought leaders to study how we can be one step closer to protecting and promoting the harmony in our country. It is my sincere wish that Singapore will continue to enjoy peace and harmony amongst our increasingly diverse communities.
