This study examines long-run relationships and short-run dynamic causal linkages among the US, Japanese, and ten Asian emerging stock markets, with the particular attention to the 1997-1998 Asian financial crisis. Extending related empirical studies, comparative analyses of pre-crisis, crisis, and post-crisis periods are conducted to comprehensively evaluate how stock market integration is affected by financial crises. In general, the results for the case of Asia show that both long-run cointegration relationships and short-run causal linkages among these markets were strengthened during the crisis and that these markets have generally been more integrated after the crisis than before the crisis. Detailed country-by-country analyses are provided, which yield a variety of new results concerning the roles of individual countries in international stock market integration. An important implication of our findings is that the degree of integration among countries tends to change over time, especially around periods marked by financial crises.
