The Politics of Southeast Asia’s Post-Nationalist Industrialization

During two decades spanning the end of the Cold War, several of the Southeast Asia’s former commodity economies were swiftly transformed into leading global manufactured exporters. Unlike the newly-industrialized countries (NICs) of Northeast Asia, who used infant-industry policies to propel national industries to global competitiveness, Southeast Asia’s NICs embraced globalization early and avidly, and relied on foreign direct investment (FDI) to lead economic development. This contrast has often framed analyses of Southeast Asia’s industrialization as a failed emulation of the developmental state form of political economy. This talk will develop an alternative analysis that depicts Southeast Asia’s industrialization as reflecting a distinct model of “post-nationalist industrialization”, with important theoretical implications for the political economy of globalization and development.
