TitleREGION AND SOCIETY (ASIA AND PACIFIC) (GIGA/GG) [ Syllabus ]


This class aims for enhancing the understanding of contemporary international political economy, security and society mainly in East Asia through examining theories, policy frameworks and practices. All sessions are conducted in English.
”Region” could be defined in various terms. In international relations, it generally indicates the multilateral groupings of neighboring nations. However, when it comes to the term regionalism, it rather suggests a functional relation that bundles multiple nations with their political, economic and cultural inheritance, often based on the geographical advantages. Region could be formed either inherently or arbitrary. Thus, the "Region/Regionalism" is a dynamic concept of geopolitics/economics, which rests between the global governance and the bilateral rational choice of the government. This course specifically focuses on following agendas: 1)theory and practices of regionalism in East Asia, 2)security in Asia-Pacific region, 3)Japan’s foreign policy on regionalism.
