The multicultural policies in Singapore have been constructed of domestic residents, foreign workers, and foreign talents. And These have been applied different perspectives as follows; ① Definding as the ‘government-driven and hardly formal’ multicultural model to domestic residents, ② Assessing the assimilation model to foreign talents, and ③ Putting into the difference exclusionary model to foreign workers. The facing subject of multicultural policies in Singapore will be to replace ‘government-driven and hardly formal’ multiculturalism with ‘selfregulating’ multicultrualism based on a ‘genuine’ tolerance.
