Special Focus: Inter-Asian (post)neoliberalism? Adoption, Disjuncture, and Transgression

This publication resulted from the workshop "'After Neoliberalism?' The Future of Postneoliberal State and Society in Asia," which convened at Inter-Asian Connections IV: Istanbul in 2013. 

The concept of post-neoliberalism that was formulated based on the political, social and economic development in some of the Latin America countries highlights changes in several realms: an extension of welfare and welfare rights, an increase in state intervention in economy, and a more participatory democracy to varying extends in different countries. The workshop organizers regarded this conceptual haziness in the formulation of post-neoliberalism as an opportunity to rethink whether or not possible alternatives to neoliberalism were emerging in another geographical setting: Asia, a region which seems to pose a challenge to neoliberal globalisation in the first place, especially because of its developmentalist past that is generally characterized by a “selective protection of domestic markets from foreign import competition; domestic control over the capital market; and an aggressive industrial policies to upgrade manufacturing and generate export strength” (Hill, 2007).
