IN-EAST Forum Lecture by Thomas Kalinowski
The Rise of East Asia and the Clash of Capitalisms | Wed, July 1, 2020, 10–12 h s.t. | Online Forum
Thomas Kalinowski is Professor at the Graduate School of International Studies, Ewha Womans University in Seoul, Korea. He holds a PhD in Political Science from Free University Berlin. He teaches International Political Economy, Comparative Political Economy, International Organizations, and Sustainable Development. His recent research has focused on bringing the Comparative Capitalist perspective into the investigation of international cooperation and conflict. His key contribution to the study of Comparative Capitalism has been to help overcome the euro-centric perspective within Comparative Political Economy by systematically including East Asia in the field.
This Presentation is based on my new book Why International Cooperation Is Failing. How the Clash of Capitalisms Undermines the Regulation of Finance. In the book I am explaining the failures of international economic and financial cooperation in the G20 since the Global Financial Crisis of 2008/09. In this presentation I will focus on the role of East Asia in this failure. I argue that East Asia’s preferences for international cooperation (or non-cooperation) can be best understood by investigating the characteristics and “defects” of the East Asian state-led and export-oriented model of capitalism.
