Syllabus:

After centuries, Asia is re-emerging as the world's economic powerhouse enabling some Asian states to establish and to exercise both 'hard' and 'soft' power. China's and India's rapid rise in recent years and Japan's post-war standing as Asia's economic behemoth are reconfiguring regional and global power balances, particularly because never before have all three nations been strong simultaneously. The new centre of power that these circumstances create within Asia is qualitatively different from that of earlier power centres in Europe or North America. How the three Asian giants relate to each other bilaterally, as a triangle, and to other nations around the globe, while establishing and exercising a distinctive power dynamic, is the subject of this course. This course will use international relations perspectives to examine the rise of these nations and the implications for the region and the world at large. It will explore the relations between and beyond these nations in areas such as defence and security, energy, environment, economic aid, regional and international organisations. The course is particularly geared towards students who are majoring in Asian Studies, Asian politics and foreign policy and international studies and development studies. 'Asian Giants' will enable students to gain a sound understanding of the importance of the rise of Japan, China and India. *Students enrolled in this course are eligible to apply for the short-term overseas program: The Gateway Japan Study Tour which is likely to be offered in April during the mid-semester break. Special arrangements can then be made to adjust assessment to suit.
