Asia-Pacific Development - GEOP330

The Asia–Pacific is a highly differentiated and dynamic region undergoing rapid social, spatial and political transformation. Communities and governments within the Asia–Pacific region are continually dealing with dilemmas associated with development, economic, political and environmental change and contestation by various stakeholders over resources at various scales (international, national and local level). Aid organisations, national bodies and foreign affairs departments in the Asia–Pacific region require graduates with the appropriate knowledge and skills to work in these areas. This unit explores the processes and consequences of development in the Asia–Pacific region and aims to give students a perspective on working professionally within an international context by gaining communication, research, critical thinking, negotiation and decision-making skills, and an appreciation of cultural differences and approaches.
