INAF-389 U.S.-Southeast Asian Relations in the Post 9/11 World
Spring for 2014-2015
This seminar course will examine the relationship between the United States and Southeast Asia in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist bombings. The United States is paying more attention to this region due to the links between several militant Islamic groups in Southeast Asia and the Al Qaeda network of Osama bin Laden. The course will cover U.S. relations on the political, economic, and socio-cultural levels with the eleven countries of Southeast Asia: Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. The United States is especially concerned about Indonesia, the largest Muslim nation in the world.
