Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course is designed to provide students with thorough theoretical and practical understanding of East Asian economies in the changing world economy. Special focus is given to the globalization trends in trade and investment activities of major East Asian economies, including Korea. The motivation and current state of APEC is subject to thorough analysis, as well.
As shown below, the course will be divided into three parts. Part 1 will be devoted to the discussion of basics of globalization of the world economy, focusing on trade and investment activities. Part 2 will investigate the strategic positions of East Asia and APEC in the world economy. Part 3 will pay a full attention to the external economic policies of Korea.
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.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

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.
