Course Aims

The course first explores the attributes of politics, social movements, and other forms of unconventional politics typically observed in development contexts. The course aims to introduce theoretical perspectives on politics, social movements and explores critiques of these perspectives based on case-based materials drawn from East Asia. The course provides students a thematically organised survey of politics and social movements. Particular attention will be given to contemporary instances of social movements (local, national, and transnational) and their bearing on development processes and outcomes across and within East Asian development contexts, past and present.
