Pardee Faculty Book Talk: Professor Min Ye

  • Starts: 12:00 pm on Monday, October 3, 2016
Join us for a Pardee Faculty Book Talk with Min Ye, Associate Professor of International Relations at BU's Pardee School of Global Studies and author of "Diasporas and Foreign Direct Investment in China and India." Min Ye offers a comparative and historical analysis of foreign direct investment (FDI) liberalization in China and India and explains how the return of these countries' diasporas affects such liberalization. It examines diasporic investment from Western FDIs and finds that diasporas, rather than Western nations, have fueled globalization in the two Asian giants. In China, diasporas contributed the lion's share of FDI inflows. In India, returned diasporas were bridges for, and initiators of, Western investment at home. Min Ye illustrates that diasporic entrepreneurs helped to build China into the world's manufacturing powerhouse and that Indian diasporas facilitated their homeland's success in software services development.
