( SFC-SFS )
Objective: To research and discuss issues of livelihood, environmental resources, health, and migration within the ASEAN countries in the postwar and contemporary periods.
The focus is on the issues that have arisen from the impact of economic development on local communities and ordinary citizens.
Method: In addition to reading theoretical and critical works on development, there is weekly discussion based on the readings. We adopt a regional focus on Southeast and East Asian with successful and unsuccessful examples. There is also a practical and micro-level focus on the people and communities that are experiencing development themselves. After the mid-term, we explore various strategies for Sustainable Development and participatory development by looking at some current projects in Asia.
