Rapidly shifting economic, political and security conditions make the Asia-Pacific perhaps the most dynamic but also most unsettled region in the world. For policymakers, this reality presents opportunities and challenges. It is no longer possible to understand the region broadly; it is necessary to examine and interact with the region in a more methodical fashion. Theoretical insights must be combined with practical knowledge to confront the region's policymaking challenges. “Global Policy in the Asia-Pacific” will provide students with the skills required to understand how regional policy-makers view the Asia-Pacific and the world, in both a theoretical and empirical context. Students completing the course will be able to critically examine these issues and generate innovative policymaking proposals for the future Asia-Pacific.
Learning OutcomesUpon completion of this course, students should be able to:1. identify the key concepts, issues and challenges that influence the dynamics of policymaking in the Asia-Pacific today and into the future;2. demonstrate an understanding of the sources of these concepts, issues and challenges and their historical development in the region;3. use these concepts in order to critically analyse and evaluate alternative policymaking dilemmas and solutions across the region and globally; and 4. develop the writing, research, and analytical skills needed to effectively communicate, orally and in writing, their own perspectives on these issues, both to scholarly audiences and to practitioners in the field, whether in government or the non-governmental sector
