The first cohort of AsiaGlobal Fellows will focus on the theme of globalization and its future, with a critical examination and understanding of global issues from Asian perspectives. Topics to be covered include:
- Geopolitics, International Relations and Global Order: economic and political relations and their historical contexts among Asian countries, between Asia and other parts of the world, and among major powers of today.
- Technology, Disruption and Globalization: socio-political and economic implications of technological innovations, and societal implications of the digital economy.
- Understanding Inequality: drivers and societal effects of inequality, possible solutions to challenges from rising inequality, and impact of globalization on inequality and social justice.
The 13-week inter-disciplinary program consists of lectures by academics, senior government officials and business leaders; skill training workshops; and onsite visits to Asian capitals and manufacturing centers.
Activities and reunions are organized to maximize both participation and interaction among current and past AsiaGlobal Fellows. Participants will benefit from and contribute to the AsiaGlobal Fellows alumni network.
