INAF-319 Peace and Security in the Indo-Pacific Region
Spring for 2015-2016
This course will examine the strategic picture of the region, focusing on the issues which will make this region increasingly a critical factor in global stability. Some of the issues which will be analyzed will include: the on-going Indo-Pakistan rivalry; the growing Indo-Chinese competition in the Indian Ocean; increasing tension between China and Japan; the volatility of the Korean Peninsula; the competing maritime claims in the South China Sea; and the role of regional organizations. We will also examine the foreign policy of some of the key countries in the Indo-Pacific, such as Australia, Indonesia, China, Japan and India. Students will be expected to choose an Indo-Pacific country on which they will give a presentation as well as write an essay.
