We live in a highly globalized era. Yet, there is a growing trend of nationalism in pockets of society the world over.

Singapore has a large population of foreign nationals and we are beginning to witness a rise in xenophobic sentiment among locals; from incendiary remarks online to general attitudes towards non-Singaporeans.

What is causing this? Do certain actions and behaviors spark these ill-feelings? Do stereotypes play a part? Or perhaps, a lack of understanding?

Tell us. We're listening.
