APW2010: Transnational: Reality First, Word Second
This talk will approach "transnational" as a plastic word and discuss how the word has been used without referring to the reality that necessitated the coinage of this word in the first place. It will link "transnational" to a particular reality that has been taking place in and between Japan and China since the 1930s to the present. It will consider yet another characteristic of a 'plastic word' that it 'transforms history into a laboratory.' Here, the question is 'who transnationalises what,'

APW2010: Divergent Dictators: Legacies of Leadership in Three Asian Authoritarian Regimes
"Finding the right place for individuals is an old problem for political analysis," explains Richard Samuels in his comparative analysis of leadership in Japan and Italy. "Do individuals make history, or does history make individuals who make history?" This paper examines the highly divergent legacies that came forth from the leadership of three Asian dictators: South Korea's Park Chung Hee (1961-1979), Indonesia's Suharto (1965-1998), and the Philippines' Ferdinand Marcos (1965-1986).

APW2010: The Regulatory Challenge of Asia
What does it mean when the Vietnamese government detains, without warning, Australian executives of an airline in which a major Australian company has made a long-term investment? After all, this kind of large-scale, high-technology investment in Asia is precisely what the global trade rules and transnational commercial laws of the late 20th century were designed to achieve. Our Vietnam example, however, is not a paradigm dispute about the terms of trade or the design of a commercial transaction

Together, these shifts depict a more independent and assertive Japan, and one that is attempting to reshape the future of the US-Japan alliance and Japan's place in the region.
