Johanna Bötscher A neorealist assessment of India.s Look East Policy

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Near East, Near Orient, grade: 1, University of Salzburg (Fachbereich für Politikwissenschaft und Soziologie), language: English, abstract: In line with its new foreign policy after the end of the Cold War India started to significantly increase its political, economic and military relations with Southeast Asia at the beginning of the 1990ies. Since then, but particularly for the last ten years this so-called „Look East Policy" has grown to a strong and multifaceted partnership that constitutes a major component of Indian foreign policy today. The principal purpose of this thesis is to evaluate India's motives for its strong interactions with Southeast Asia. The most common approach among academics to explain India's Look East Policy follows a liberal understanding of International Relations. Liberals argue that both, India and the Southeast Asian countries want to exploit complementarities in their economic and social structures: This thesis however, follows a neorealist understanding of International Relations by arguing that the Look East Policy is primarily a strategy of the Indian government to counterbalance the growing Chinese influence in Southeast Asia: Due to the geographic closeness of the Asia Pacific region to the Indian subcontinent, China's presence there is particularly worrisome for India. It thus aligns with the Southeast Asian states in order to...

Thi Thu Huong Dang Examining the engagement between civil society in Southeast Asia and ASEAN in the ASEAN Community building process

Essay from the year 2008 in the subject South Asian Studies, South-Eastern Asian Studies, grade: A-, LUISS University of Rome (LUISS University of Rome, Faculty of Social Science), 47 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The essay examines the engagement between civil society in Southeast Asia andASEAN in the ASEAN community building process. It argues that in spite of initial efforts inmutual accommodation, both sides have been divided from within, which slows theengagement and gives it more form than substance. The efforts by ASEAN so far will onlycreate a community of the governing elite, not a community of the people. Regionalcommunity building, just like nation-building, is very much a people-centered process. It isnot a simple top-down chain of command and control. If ASEAN wants to establish a realcommunity, it must change its modus operandi. It must be much more than an exclusive clubfor the governing elite by giving more space as well as power to civil society in its agendasettingand decision-making. A community is much more a cognitive than material construction; it is somethingthat has to be believed in, sensed, and nurtured by the people. In Southeast Asia, theAssociation of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is building an ASEAN Community, whichis its most far-reaching project. Yet is it possible for a regional organisation that has beenwidely criticised by civil society for being remote to and detached from the people toestablish a community of...

Ken Conboy KOPASSUS. Inside Indonesia's Special Forces

In a nation where the military has played an influential social and political role since its founding, perhaps no unit has wielded more power-and seen more action-than Kopassus, Indonesia's Special Forces. From the jungles of Irian Jaya to the backrooms of Jakarta's most powerful political figures, this elite group of commandos has influenced nearly every major policy decision taken since its inception in 1952.Here, for the first time, this secretive and controversial unit is exposed in KOPASSUS: Inside Indonesia's Special Forces by acclaimed author Ken Conboy. In this new age of terrorism and counter-terrorism, and especially in the wake of the October 2002 Bali bombing, understanding Kopassus is an integral part of understanding the politics of modern Indonesia.

Christian Abels Singapore.s Challenges in the Information Era

Diploma Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject South Asian Studies, South-Eastern Asian Studies, grade: 2,3, University of Bonn, course: Regionalwissenschaften Südostasien, Medienwissenschaften, language: English, abstract: Singapore's media system has been stable through a period of revolutionary change and impressive reform elsewhere. While new players and technologies have found its way into the media scene, the ruling People's Action Party's (PAP) upholds the media's fundamental structure. Historical racial rioting has been linked to justify the subordinate role of the press. In contrast to the Western Press which is often denominated as the 'fourth estate' of the state, the Singaporean press is rather to support the PAP's politics.Due to different political, historical, cultural and economic environment, authoritarian politicians in Southeast Asia argue that freedom of the press, as a Western concept, has a different meaning and weight unlike in the Western industrial nations because of its different value system. The Asian values require the harmony between the press and the state as in the 'partners in nationbuilding' to maintain its authoritarian governance and at the same time sharing a common interest in economic growth.Singapore's government has promoted and established sophisticated information and communication technologies amongst the first. Nowadays, Singapore can consider itself as one of the most developed and best ne...

IN A NATION where the military has played an influential social and political role since its founding, perhaps no unit has wielded more power – and seen more combat – than Kopassus, Indonesia’s Special Forces. And perhaps nowhere did it experience more challenging assignments than in the mountains and jungles of East Timor. Here, two Kopassus teams – codenamed nanggala, a Sanskrit term for “divine spear” – are documented in detail during the earliest phase of the East Timor campaign. Coming when Fretilin insurgents were at their most powerful, these Special Forces teams took on assignments ranging from airborne assaults to psychological warfare.

Much of this success has been attributed to a distinctly Asian development model that combines high work ethics with an exceptional emphasis on savings and high rates of investment in both infrastructure and human capital. Moreover, the Asian Miracle was also facilitated by the extraordinary complementarily of resources, stages of development and policies of Asian countries.

ChinHwee Tan Asian Financial Statement Analysis. Detecting Financial Irregularities

Gain a deeper understanding of Asian financial reporting and how to detect irregularities The Asian region, and particularly China, is becoming a hotbed of investment activity. There have been quite a few accounting scandals in Asia in the recent years – now rivaling those we have seen in the Americas and Europe. Assessing potential or active overseas investments requires reliance on financial statements, the full parameters of which may vary from region to region. To effectively analyze statements, it is necessary to first understand the framework underlying these financial statements and then lay out a protocol for detecting irregularities. It's impossible to create and implement a practical plan without a deeper knowledge of the various factors at play. Asian Statement Analysis: Detecting Financial Irregularities provides a framework for analysis that makes irregularities stand out. Authors Chin Hwee Tan and Thomas R. Robinson discuss international financial reporting standards, including characteristics particular to the Asian region. Tan and Robinson's combined background in academia and Asian finance give them a multi-modal perspective and position them as top authorities on the topic. In the book, they address issues such as: Detection of irregularities independent of particular accounting rules The most common irregularities in the Asian market Similarities and differences between U.S. and Asian accounting techniques An overarching framework for irregularity detection The book uses real-world examples to illustrate the concepts presented, with the focus on Asian companies. As the first ever in-depth study on manipulation and irregularities in the Asian market, Asian Financial Statement Analysis: Detecting Financial Irregularities is uniquely positioned to be a valuable resource in the move toward the next phase of global reporting standards.
