Strategic Asia: Policy and Analysis (15 credits)
This is an elective 15 credit module for students taking the MA in Risk and Security and is led out of Durham University's School of Government and International Affairs (SGIA)
The aim of this model is to provide students with an advanced understanding of key concepts and theories in the international politics of East Asia, notably the interaction of culture and strategy. This includes advanced knowledge of the power relationships between Russia, China, Japan and the United States; an advanced understanding of how these theoretical approaches have been, or could be, applied to the study of key problem areas in the international politics of the region; critical evaluation of leading scholarship in the field of East Asian international politics; and an understanding of strategic politics and how this shapes foreign policy thinking and behaviour in the countries of the Strategic Quadrangle.
