Learning outcomes

Students will learn the general developments of regionalization in East and Southeast Asia since the establishment of ASEAN in 1967. From this basis, students learn to analyse the current dynamics of regionalization in the area.

General description

The course covers both traditional and non-traditonal forces of regionalization. It discusses regional organizations as well as political and economic factors behind regionalization. However, the main focus is on factors such as popular culture and cross-border threats to human security that strenghten the feeling of togetherness and the need for closer cooperation. 


Apply 1-30 September 2015 through the website of the Finnish University Network for Asian Studies. A maximum of 40 students will be accepted to the course in the order of application. The course is targeted at Master's level students.
