North-East Asia – Recent history and politics

Yesterday, I received an e-mail with the results from the take-home exam I handed in for our course about recent history and politics in North-East Asia. One of my goals for March was to earn full grades for the two exams we had, but it is only now, six weeks later, that I can conclude that the goal was actually accomplished (I had 175.5 out of 177 on the other exam). Still, four important things remain before I can focus fully on preparations for my Taiwan adventure. First, there is a project that is to be handed in next week. Second, there are three language-related exams (one translation, one general, and one technical Chinese).

As usual, I publish exams I hand in (last years take-home exam can be found here). It is written in Swedish, and focuses on five question relating to: economy in the region as a whole, opposition parties in Japan, negative aspects of Chinese growth, Chinese system of guanxi, and politics in South Korea. I received 95/100 on this course.
