Asia Core Seminar (3)

Asia in Comparative Perspective: Governance, Development, Security

This course analyzes the political systems, political economies, and international relations of East and Southeast Asia, one of the world's most dynamic, diverse, and strategically important regions. The course examines governance, economic development, security (both traditional and non-traditional/human security), and foreign policy issues within a comparative perspective. These overarching themes are explored in the context of both domestic and regional developments as well as the impact of China's rise on long established American and Japanese interests in the region. The course also examines the evolving Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)-led political, economic, and security cooperation in the context of Asia-Pacific regional institutionalization.
