Focuses on regional economic integration theory and practice. In the first module, theories of regional integration (such as functionalism, neo-functionalism, complex interdependence, business-government corporatism, structuralism) are examined in detail. In the second module, students study the historical record of successes and failures of regional integration in different continents. Case studies include the European Union, the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Latin American Free Trade Agreement, the Association of South East Asian Nations and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation. In the third module, students consider the strategic implications for Australia of further economic integration in the Asia-Pacific region and examine various proposals for bilateral and plurilateral regional arrangements with Asian and Pacific states.
