The five original ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) member states are the focus of study, but their experience will also be related to that of other developing regions where relevant. The ASEAN group contains considerable diversity in terms of resource endowments, policy orientations and economic performance, thereby offering a range of case studies for analysis. The principal themes explored are the economic effects of rapid growth, structural change and changing comparative advantage, and the economic implications of growing regionalisation and internationalisation of the economies. Economic theory and descriptive analysis are combined to assess and evaluate the economic performance and policies of these countries.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. study some of the formal analysis in the literature on the Southeast Asian economies;
  2. undertake formal analysis of recent policy responses in the region.
