課程概述

Basically, the course is operated in a “seminar” format- meaning that students are “very strongly” encouraged to present their opinions and challenge their fellow colleagues by offering different theoretical viewpoints or empirical information.

The course instructor will give a brief presentation on the each topic every week (around 1 hour), following by students’ oral presentation to their thoughts on assigned readings. All students are requested to write up one A4 page (800 words in English, or for the first few weeks, 1,200 words in Chinese is “compromised” to accept). Students who are NOT in charge of the week need to collect one piece of news about the course topic with different country focus. Students who are the chair of the week need to make their oral presentation by compiling everyone’s written thoughts as well as submitted news reports.
 

課程目標
News report on a specific country is an important exercise to the course. Students need to pick up one or two developing or least developed countries as their focus and stick on it for the entire semester. Countries having diplomatic relations with Taiwan is highly advised.

There will be two to three times for the debate practice. Students are requested to divide into two groups: pros and cons. The debate questions include:

(1) To regulate all companies to hire 40% of female for their company board members is good to development (A case of Norway)
(2) Environmental pessimistic vis-à-vis environmental optimistic
(3) Decentralization results in regional inequality.
(4) To be identified (More debate questions are also welcome to propose. The finalized debate topics will be announced soon).
 
課程要求
The course has a final exam. Students will get an exam sheet at 6:30pm on 2010 January 12th, and need to hand in their answer sheets within 24 hours. Any four of seven questions need to be replied. Each question should be answered between 2,000- 2,500 words (in English). Word count should be noted in the end of the answer of each question.
