An evaluation of the Flying Geese development framework
On 19 December 2019, Shigehisa Kasahara successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled 'A Critical Evaluation of the Flying Geese Paradigm: the evolving framework of the model and its application to East Asian regional development and beyond' in which he discussed this development model over the years.
The Flying Geese model is a development framework of collective catch-up process of national economies as a regional group. The rise (and fall) of the model’s appeal, particularly as a regional development model for East Asia, has been attributable to the varying degrees of intensity and zeal with which its proponents have advocated the model.
