Prüfungsimmanente Lehrveranstaltung

Why does East Asian foreign aid have the features it has? What kinds of experiences and values have shaped the content and strategies of foreign aid giving in Japan, China and South Korea? Can we speak of an East Asian approach towards foreign aid? To what extent are domestic models of development reflected in the East Asian donors' foreign aid programs? This course discusses these and other questions also in the light of the recently launched Asian Investment and Infrastructure Bank.

Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The aim of this class is to analyse the motivations of East Asian donors and to examine the content and objectives of their foreign aid programs. Students are also going to study the structures of official development assistance (ODA) in these countries. The primary focus will be on China, Japan and South Korea.

At the end of the course students will be able to understand basic features of aid relationships and development cooperation. Students will also be able to give an overview on the history of East Asia's foreign aid and explain the various dimensions (political, commercial, moral etc.) of aid. Furthermore, students will be able to explain the structures and priorities of East Asian ODA.

Group work and short presentations on specific topics are central to this course. Students are expected to do the readings since class discussion is integral to this course. Students are required to draft and submit a research design that includes the development of a research question, theory, methodology etc. The lecturer will provide individual feedback to group work, presentations and other assignments.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Students will be evaluated on basis of performance on assignments (group work/presentations: 30% and written assignments: 45%) and participation in class (25%). Attendance is compulsory but not sufficient for a good participation grade.
