This project was organized by ten scholars who varied in their disciplines from development economics through political economy to forest sociology. Major topics are tow. One is the study of direction of economic development policies and developmental strategies which the governments in Southeast Asia have undertaken, and the other is the study of social response of each country to these government policies. "Developmental strategies" here do include not only industrialization but also promotion of rural development, urban planning and natural resources developement.
initially we presuppose that each countly may show unique pattern of developement due to the differences in social response to "developmental strategies" in the process of transferring to more deepening market economy. According to this hypothesis, our member conducted intensive field research for three years in Southeast Asian countries together with China and Bangladesh.
From these field research, we temporarily conclude that the uniqueness of development in Southeast Asia has been determined by three major elements, that is, (1) ecological factors in general and characteristics of delta formation in particular ; (2) institutional/organizational adjustment of each country to alleviate social conflict stemming from rapid industrialization ; and (3) the role of family and community which support stability and security of social life that the government has hardly touch on. Traditional approach has focussed on rational behavior of individuals and supplemental role of government when arguing economic development. The role of non-governmental institution, however, should not be neglected when discussing both economic growth and social stability.
