This course exposes students to multiple approaches to the study of international relations in the Asia-Pacific. These approaches inform theoretical and policy debates in terms of different levels or scales of analysis from individuals, states and regional institutions as well as globally. In doing so, the course explores a range of understandings of regional affairs, both traditional and non-traditional, and interrogates underlying motives and competing visions for achieving international order, peace and security in the region. Students will take part within a broader project of theorising international relations from the Asia-Pacific by learning historical and contemporary debates, identifying challenges, and deliberating on policy implications. Through the course, students will gain a nuanced understanding of the diversity that defines the region, its sub-regions and specific comparative country case studies, and why this diversity matters for security.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Cultivate students' appreciation for the key dynamics shaping major changes in Asia-Pacific affairs and evolving regional order-building
- Build conceptual understandings by integrating theoretical and empirical perspectives about why and how key Asia-Pacific actors (state-centric, institutional and individual) shape regional behaviour
- Identify and assess issue-areas most likely to shape or drive Asia-Pacific affairs over the next decade and beyond
- Demonstrate capacity in applying theoretical insights for policy and translating knowledge to a broader non-academic audience
The course is conducted through seminars with an emphasis on interactive teaching aimed at engaging all students in active participation.
