Asian Studies Partnership:
Business and Economic Relationships with Asia
Since the Asian Economic Crisis



With the ever-increasing growth of Asian economies, and the impacts and roles that Asian countries are playing in the global economy, today’s college and university students will need knowledge and preparation to relate to the various Asian and Pacific business environments.  This Asian Studies Partnership will concentrate on collecting resources that help fill those needs, ranging from works that describe the business and economic landscape of the region since the Asian Economic Crisis, to works that prepare students to communicate effectively, in both linguistic and cultural contexts.  The partnership will also incorporate social and political aspects that will undoubtedly shape the economic picture of the region and the world, particularly including the relationships of religions to culture and the possibilities for peace throughout the region [...full project description]
