■Research theme, outline of project research seminar, message to prospects:
In this project students are expected to examine the state of main determinants of
economic development of Asian countries, and relate the various policies by governments
to the economic performance of each country. Not only economic development
strategies and industrialization policy, but also other public policies such as
educational policy and security measures, which are related to economic
development, are also considered. Each student can focus on one country and investigate
several aspects of public policy in relation to economic development, or pay
attention to one area of public policy and make comparative analysis across
several Asian countries. In Ph.D. seminar, we conduct political economic
analysis of economic development, and investigate the reasons for the
difference in economic development strategies.
