Book launch at CBS, Denmark
September 11, 2012 - 15:00-18:00
The Asia Research Centre at the Copenhagen Business Scholl (CBS) invites to a public launch of the latest book edited by Prof. Anthony D’Costa, ”Globalization and Economic Nationalism and Asia”. The event will take place on 11 September 2012, 15.00 – 18.00 at CBS. The book in focus aims at challenging the popular view that with globalization either the role of the state becomes redundant or that states are unable to purposefully intervene in the economy. The book argues that since most states pursue national interests, which largely include economic development, they work with national business and often intervene on their behalf to create internationally competitive industries. Contributors from Asia and elsewhere present wide-ranging arguments and demonstrate that states in Asia are active in shaping trade, investment, technological, industrial, and financial outcomes. Countries covered include India, China, South Korea, Singapore, Japan, and the East Asian region as a whole.
The book launch stats at 15.00 with a welcome by the Dean of Research at CBS, Prof. Alan Irwin. It continues with a short speech by Prof. Kjeld Erik Brødsgaard, Director of the Asia Research Centre at CBS. Other speakrs will be Prof. Rory Miller, University of Liverpool and coeditor of Journal of Latin American Studies, as well as Assoc. Prof. Jørgen Pedersen, Aarhus University who will talk about ”India: Economic Nationalism as a Road to Growth and Development?”. The programme finishes with a reception that will last until 18.00.
Venue: Copenhagen Business School, room PH408, Porcelænshaven 24, 2000, Frederiksberg, Denmark
