關於第二項主要課程要求(佔總成績百分之六十),學生可以選擇在家期末考、寫研究報告(長篇報告)或三篇評論短文,課程之三部份各一。


短篇評論作業

請務必著重於探討相關文獻、論點、爭議焦點及各派學者所持之立場。盡可能掌握指派之閱讀素材,展現你對相關文獻的瞭解。

  1. 「實證國際政治經濟」為國際政治經濟領域發展上的重要突破,其理論基礎、假設、行為科學上的意涵為何?

  2. 論者謂國際制度在管理且/或促進國際經濟交易角色日益凸顯,你是否同意?若是,原因為何?若否,原因為何?請針對特定的制度及經濟交易型態加以評論。

  3. 國內與國家之間的「人口動態」(demographic dynamics)以何種方式影響國際政治和國際經濟?主要學說論點為何?經驗證據為何?請注意括號內該詞在此做廣義解釋,包含勞力、就業移動及其他相關人口變數等。

  4. 請申論「科技變革」(technological change)在形塑國際政治經濟理論及政策議題之角色。作答時,首先釐清何謂「科技變革」,其次評述學者在理論及經驗研究上對此議題之看法。輔以特定事例說明為佳。


研究報告須知

研究報告包含三個階段:

(i)題目之選擇與問題之設定(以便教師核可並討論)
(ii) 文獻評論及其意涵(亦便於討論)
(iii)論點一貫之全文綱要,以為寫作基礎

選擇研究報告選項之學生在第(i)、(iii)階段亦需上台作簡短報告。


For the second major course requirement (60% of grade), students may choose from a take home final exam, a research paper (long paper) or three short review essays covering the individual parts of the course.


Short Essay Assignments

Please be sure to highlight the relevant literature, the arguments and contentions, and the positions taken by scholars addressing these issued. The task is to draw on the assigned materials as much as possible to demonstrate your understanding of the relevant literatures.

  1. What are the theoretical foundations, assumptions, and behavioral implications of 'positive international political economy' as a distinct thrust in the development of the IPE field.

  2. It is often argued that international institutions are increasingly salient in managing and/or facilitating international economic exchanges. Do you agree? If so why? If not, why not. Please comment with reference to specific institution(s) and specific types of economic exchanges.

  3. In what ways do 'demographic dynamics' – within and across states – influence international politics and international economics? What are the major theoretical arguments? What is the empirical evidence? Please note that the terms in quote are used in the inclusive sense, i.e. covering labor, employment, mobiliity etc. and other relevant population variables.

  4. Please write an essay on the 'role of technological change' in shaping evolving theoretical and policy issues in international political economy. In so doing, begin by clarifying what is meant by 'technological change', and then review ways in which scholars have addressed this issue theoretically and empirically. Specific examples and illustrations are most welcome.


Research Paper Background

The research paper consists of three 'steps':

(i) Choice of topic and definition of problem (to be reviewed and discussed with the Instructor);
(ii) Literature review and implications (also for discussion);
(iii) Coherent outline of entire paper and argument; and on the basis of these steps the paper is then written.

Students selecting the research paper option are also requested to give brief class presentations at steps (i) and (iii).
