INTL 2430 The Challenges of Development (Summer: 3 )


Course Description

The process of economic development is more than simply getting particular economic policies right. In addition to economic policy, developing economies are tied to their history, social and cultural norms, institutions as well as local and regional politics. Using Vietnam as a case-study, this Summer Seminar is intended to introduce students to some of the many complex challenges of development. In particular, the Seminar will consider the role of institutions and the ‘rule of law’ including both formal and informal arrangements for dispute resolution in the development process. Students will write a series of short reflection papers while in Vietnam as well as a longer paper upon their return to the U.S.
