1. Pratt, Jenner James. The Soft Power of Education and Its Role in Canada-Asia Relations: The Case Study of China.

Degree: Master, International Master Program in Asia-Pacific Affairs (IMAPA), 2016, NSYSU

The researcher set out to understand why Canada has been slow to move on the rise of Asia, and to uncover the best course of action for overcoming the countryâs Asia competence deficiency. Much has been offered by way of explanations and remedies, but the field of interest is devoid of a comprehensive synthesis of this information for use in effecting policy change. Prior study of this issue area has failed to cut through the web of factors to the core of both the problem, and solution. It also lacks critical analysis from a theoretical approach. The authorâs exploration of this topic was conducted using a constructivist framework, allowing it to shape the direction of the research, and interpret its results. All material, sourced from government and policy institute reports, academic journals, and news outlets, passed through this lens. It was made clear that education lies at the heart of what prevents progress, and what must be utilized to create a Canadian shift to Asia. Educationâs soft power holds the potential to establish a higher form of public discourse. If this soft power is cultivated properly through cohesive public sponsorship, a two-way flow of attraction will result, increasing interaction, and enabling the formation of a shared identity. As China is the most influential member of the Asian region, this study focused on drawing closer ties between Canada and the PRC. While they are saddled with a great deal of inhibitive controversy, Confucius Institutes come to the fore of this researcherâs work as powerful tools for initiating a deep and lasting pivot in the direction of securing Canadaâs place in the coming âAsian century.â Advisors/Committee Members: Allison Haga (committee member), Hsiu-Fei Wang (chair), Lin Wen-cheng (chair).

Subjects/Keywords: constructivism; soft power; Confucius Institute; Asia competence; Canada; China; international relations

2. Fredén, Karolina. The Individual's Expectations on Competence Development in a Transnational Organization.

Degree: Management and Economics, 2003, Linköping University

Background: The turmoil caused by the new demands of globalization has forced multinational companies to rethink their traditional worldwide strategic approaches. The new strategies have resulted in reviews and questioning of the organizational structures and processes used to manage worldwide operations. A major part of this management is to develop the competences the company needs. To be able to develop the employees’ competence is important for comapnies such as IKEA's Trading Area South East Asia (TASEA). Therefore TASEA has to understand the factors that influence the employees’ expectations regarding competence development. Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to understand the individual’s expectations on competence development in TASEA and give recommendations to improve the conditions for competence development. Method: This study has been conducted as a case study of the TASEA organization. It is based on interviews with 29 members of the purchasing teams and 3 members of the top-mamagement. The empirical research was conducted on site in the Bangkok, Jakarta and Ho Chi Minh City offices. Result: The view of competence differs a lot between theories, management and the individual employee. A number of conflicts have been analyzed and some practical suggestions have been presented in the case of TASEA.
