The Course designs to provide graduate students an thorough understanding of the complexity of this strategically important area, and of China in its, as well as other major players, strategic interests and their policy prospects toward this region. As China gains strategic advantage in Southeast Asia, what would be the response of ASEAN in this particular regards, and, moreover, what are the implications to the US, Japan, and other concerned parties as well. Those are also important issues deserved to be in a further exploration in the future.
Southeast Asia is a region of strategic sensitivity because of the intersection of the interest several major powers there- the U.S., China and Japan. Among them, China’s situation is very different and important, as Southeast Asia is a vital neighboring area which must not be controlled by hostile regimes, and preferably should be rule by states that acknowledge China’s historical superiority and current prominence.
The course designs to provide students an engaging introductory look at the history, culture, and politics of this intriguing region. It also provides student an introductory background for understanding China’s ASEAN policy in the beginning of this century, in the hope of answering the question of whether or not the PRC is a threat to Southeast Asia in the long run.
