    RECAS (Raffles Economics and Cultural Affairs Society) promotes continued academic excellence in the field of economics and political science (Current Affairs) and is the gateway for the interested student population to learn more about current affairs, economic theory and international politics.

    In this constantly evolving and highly competitive world, a grasp of the latest happenings around the globe is no doubt crucial for success. Here, new members can look forward to develop a habit for keeping track with current affairs. In the long run, members can amass a vast knowledge on the workings of the world, and formulate a better understanding of the many global problems and complexities.

    Being a student-directed CCA, all of our sessions and activities are planned and executed by our own members and this would give you, should you join RECAS, the opportunity to develop and structure your own curriculum and the flexibility to freely explore what you are interested in.

    With that, we eagerly anticipate you joining us, and we hope to be able to spark off your love affair with current affairs (and of course, economics) here!
