|Research Cluster on Global Flows, Regional Integration, and Other Economic Issues
Convenor: Rosalina Tan, PhD (email@example.com)
An interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research cluster, GLOBAL FLOWS and REGIONAL INTEGRATION is for faculty members from any discipline of the School of Social Sciences who are interested in examining the trans-national movements of people, goods, capital, and ideas. It is also for faculty members who are interested in examining regional integration initiatives, processes and issues. The two concepts – global flows and regional integration -- may be treated separately but may also be treated as two aspects of the globalization process. This is because as movements of people, goods, capital and ideas proceed globally, nation-states have attempted to form bigger units such as the European Union (EU), ASEAN, Asia-Pacific Economic Organization (APEC), North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in order to face the challenges of globalization.
Utilization of approaches commonly used in the social science disciplines and the comparative approach in any discipline (comparative politics, comparative sociology, etc) is encouraged. Units of analysis may be any country, any Asian region, any regional organization, as well any international organization.
Examples of research topics in this cluster are migration, including one of its obvious results, which is the phenomenon of nation-states with multicultural population, or its illegal aspects, such as human trafficking; trade, including bilateral trade, free trade agreements, and economic partnership agreements; ideas and ideologies such as the so-called Asian values and ASEAN way; trans-national environmental and health concerns such as air pollution, water pollution, radiation, communicable diseases; organizational arrangements such as ASEAN, APEC, EU, NAFTA; issues resulting from ambiguous national boundaries, such as territorial disputes, fishing rights disputes, and water-use disputes; and other economic issues.
Faculty members are encouraged to do individual research as well as joint or group research. They are also encouraged to consider deadlines for application for research load when formulating their research design.
