This course has been adjusted for remote participation in Semester 1 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions. On-campus activities may also be available.

This course will apply basic international relations theories encompassing realist, liberal-internationalist and constructivist perspectives to ongoing and emerging political dynamics in the Asia-Pacific region. It complements comparative political perspectives on regional governance by applying state-centric and key sub-state based perspectives on understanding how the region ‘matters’ in a global context. Various perspectives on international political economics, foreign policy analysis, international security and regional/international institutions will supplement the theoretical perspectives that underwrite the subject’s conceptual approach.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. The ability to apply international relations theoretical and empirical perspectives to their overall understanding of the politics of the Asia-Pacific;
  2. A developed capacity to apply a diverse array of conceptual approaches as a means of enriching their knowledge of the politics of the Asia-Pacific;
  3. The ability to better relate cultural, social, economic, political and strategic factors to the foreign policy formulation of key Asia-Pacific states; and
  4. The ability to work in various policy environments that will require sophisticated skills sets in the politics policy arena of the Asia-Pacific, with particular emphasis on communication skills (as developed through written assessments, in-class discussions and tutorial-based activities).
