This unit takes an interdisciplinary, political-economy approach to the study of the Asia-Pacific region. In particular it focuses on the debates within the region surrounding the pursuit of three broad goals: national security, socio-economic development, and democracy. While these goals are multifaceted and ordinarily require co-ordination amongst a range of actors, national leaders in the region have tended to rely on centralised and ‘statist’ means in order to pursue them, thereby creating numerous frictions with putative opponents in both the domestic and international realms. By adopting such an ‘inside-out’ approach, this unit seeks to provide students with a more nuanced understanding of the ongoing struggles for political and economic power in the region.
