The Open University, Milton Keynes, Berrill Lecture Theatre

The Symposium 'Asia Rising: A New Oriental Globalization?' is organised by Development, Policy & Practice (DPP ) and is held on 26 June 2012 at The Open University in Milton Keynes.

Alessandra Marino speaks as part of the panel on (Geo)politics. The title of her presentation is 'Whose Nation? Whose development? Resisting orientalism in the Narmada Valley'. The PowerPoint presentation of her talk is available for download.

The rapid economic growth of China and India over the last 30 years has fuelled talk of an ‘Asian Century’ in which the two powers will increasingly dominate the global economy and world affairs. The veracity and implications of these claims are subjects of heated debate and The Open University is undertaking pioneering research to better understand the nature and outcomes of Asia’s rise.
