This course is a multi-disciplinary course that facilitates the students to read the contemporary history of East Asia that continues to impact on the interaction between the regional powers; to understand the region’s unique political culture that shapes its pattern of international behaviour; and to grasp the major features of the region’s political economy that define its developmental model against the background of changing international economic order. The political order of Asia and the Pacific is undergoing a substantial restructuring with global consequences. This course will introduce to the students the catalysts for the change and trend of development by analysing the responses of key players in the dynamic process of globalization, the major players such as China, Japan, Australia and ASEAN states.
