Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Based on reading academic texts (available online), students learn about the key theories of economic development. This newly acquired knowledge is applied to an analysis of economic development in East Asia. The focus is on the dynamic process of economic development and the corresponding role of the state. Comparative analyses of the East Asian cases are conducted against this background, in particular considering liberal-democratic vs. authoritarian-socialist models.

Assessment and permitted materials

The core requirement of this seminar is an analytical term paper. Details on further assignments etc. are outlined on moodle.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Students master the fundamental ideas of various key theories of economic development; in particular classical/neoclassical, Marxist, Keynesian and dependency theory, dirigisme, structuralism, and neoliberalism. They understand the developmental paths of the individual East Asian countries both from a general perspective and with regard to their particularities, and are able to conduct comparative, method-based country case analyses and to apply the acquired knowledge to contemporary developments in the region.

Examination topics

This is a text-based seminar. Accordingly, in preparation of each unit, students will be asked to read related book chapters or articles and analyze these according to pre-defined questions. This will create a foundation for active discussion during the seminar. Expect reading about 40 pages per week.
