présentera, le 20 mars 2019, de 14h à 16h, à l'EHESS, salle BS1_28, 54 bd Raspail, Paris, une conférence intitulée :
Developmental state and politics of industrial complex development in South Korea
This lecture explores the ways in which the Masan Free Export Zone was developed in the late 1960s. In contrast to the developmental state thesis, which relies on the neo-Weberian assumption of the state-society separation and the methodological nationalism, this research borrows the strategic- relational view to the state, which sees the state actions as an outcome of complex interactions among social forces acting in and through the state, as well as the multi-scalar approach to the political economic processes, in order to better grasp the spatiality of Korean industrialization. In particular, this paper will examine the ways in which the construction of Masan Free Export Zone was planned, implemented and materialized through complex and contested interactions among social forces at various geographical scales acting in and through the state.
