The Beijing Political Economy Seminar is a cross-disciplinary program in which students analyze the economy of China, investigate the government institutions that develop and shape Chinese policy, and meet the people who make policy work. The seminar emphasizes on-site activity, with visits to economic agencies, government organizations, industrial sites, and rural locations. In the 2006 seminar, plans are to make week-long stopes in Thailand and Vietnam to place China's political economy in an Asia-wide context.
