Enrolment code: HSA258/358

Offered: not offered in 2003

Unit description:

Examines the political development of the countries of the East Asian region – Japan, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia – in the context of the international political economy. The unit begins with an introduction to the main interpretations of international political economy. It then considers: the relationship between the countries of East Asia and the US-dominated postwar international political economy; the nature of an East Asian model of political economy, pioneered by Japan, and the extent to which it may be imitated in the region; the challenge of this East Asian model to international political economy; the potential for an East Asian regionalism; and the pressures for radical change in the political economy of East Asia as a result of the financial crisis in the region.
