Asian Economic Community - FASS2300

Year - 2020

This unit of study aims to develop our understanding of major issues concerning Asian economic community and its prospects. Students will study both contemporary and historical developments in various Asian economies from a multidisciplinary perspective. For a deeper and broader understanding, the unit will consider non-economic factors such as geopolitical, cultural and social influences that interact with economic policies and outcomes in the region. This is achieved by bringing guest lecturers of varying expertise who will share their insights and knowledge. This unit will also assess the prospects and preconditions required for a viable and prosperous regional economic community in Asia.
