Have you ever wondered why economic differences in Asia are so striking? Why is extreme poverty next to immense wealth? Why does subsistence farming persist in the shadows of hyper modern city skylines? In this course you may find some answers. You will learn how supply chains transform the global economy and shape the landscape of economic development. We will apply spatial concepts and tools in order to understand emerging patterns of economic integration and disintegration in Asia.

In the course we start by introducing theoretical arguments concerning economic geography and development and then apply them to case studies in East and South-East Asia.

This is followed by specialised study of theories and concepts that explain national and global economic circumstances focusing on global supply chains. In the course we systematically analyse the global organisation of production with regard to five different fields: financial markets, trade, industrial relations, multinational companies and innovation.

The aim of the course is to provide you with an understanding of the impact of the factors, processes and consequences of globally organised production on individuals and nations in East and South-East Asia. In the course we will discuss economic theories from an interdisciplinary perspective to promote a critical understanding.

International student?

Make your application in the First Admission Round at universityadmissions.se.

Application period October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
