Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course is designed to provide students with thorough theoretical and practical knowledge on regional economic integration and regional architecture in East Asia. Through this course, students will be equipped with basic analytical tools for understanding the complexity of regionalism and multilateralism in the world economy, and more specifically in East Asia.
As shown below, the course will be divided into three parts. Part 1 will be devoted to the basics of regionalism and multilateralism in general. The potential conflicts between the two currents in the world economy will be discussed and the basic economics of regionalism analyzed. Part 2 will investigate the practical analysis of regional integration in East Asia. Students will have opportunities to look into major regional integration bodies in East Asia, thereby grasping comparative perspective to European integration. The main focus of Part 3 will be given to national strategies of major stakeholders in the region.
Professor wants to operate the course in a highly interactive manner. Students are required to prepare for the course through reading materials provided by the professor, to give one presentation during Part 2 and Part 3 of the course, and do occasional homework.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Students are expected to be present regularly at the class, and should not miss more than two sessions without any unavoidable reasons.
Raising comments, asking questions and bringing relevant issues into discussion are all highly encouraged and welcome. In the classroom, a basic rule "anybody can intervene anytime" would be applied, so that both professor and students have enough opportunities to discuss important and relevant issues to their satisfaction.
Students assigned to presentations have to prepare presentation material, either in PPT file format or Word/pdf format, and make it available by the end of the week preceding the presentation.
Students have to submit one (academic) term paper by May 16, the final day of the course. The topic of the term paper can in principle be freely chosen among the topics of the course. It’s also allowed to select a topic, on which the students have presented in the class.
Term papers to be submitted will normally be of around 4,000 words, and have to additionally include footnotes and references.
