ASST 711 - Politics & Societies:SE Asia
This course introduces students to politics, economics, and societies of Southeast Asia, namely Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. How do we understand the political economic system of a culturally diverse Southeast Asia? What does democracy means to the people who live in this multi-ethnic region? Why are vote-buying, political assassinations, corruption, coups, and protests so prominent in these societies? What roles do women, workers, and overseas Chinese play in Southeast Asian society? During the early 1990s, certain countries in the region were models of economic growth for other developing countries in the world. By the end of the 1990s, those same countries experienced a financial crisis that affected the rest of the world economy. What happened? These are some key issues that will be examined in the course.
