COSM32: East and South-East Asia's Role in the Global Economy

In the course, East and South-East Asia's role in the global economy is studied and analysed. It starts by introducing theoretical arguments concerning economic geography and development and applies them to case studies in East and South-East Asia. This is followed by specialised study of theories and concepts that explain national and global economic circumstances focusing on global supply chains. The course systematically analyses the global organisation of production with regard to five different fields: financial markets, trade, industrial relations, multinational companies and innovation.

The aim of the course is to provide students with an understanding of the impact of the factors, processes and consequences of globally organised production on individuals and nations in East and South-East Asia. The course discusses economic theories from an interdisciplinary perspective to promote a critical understanding.
