INAF-515 Redefining Geopolitical Relationships
Fall for 2009-2010
Redefining Geo-political Relationships
The 21st Century has ushered in a global transformation that is redefining the world order. This transformation is shifting geo-political centers of gravity and is re-casting geo-political influences as the world experiences an unprecedented diffusion of power. This course will examine the above thesis… is this in fact happening? Are the six and a half billion people in the world – soon to be eight billion – and the nations they reside in, redefining geo-political relationships governed by the new realities of global challenges? Global challenges such as an interconnected global economy, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, environmental and energy issues, pandemic health threats, poverty, despair, and new technologies. Are we entering a new era of global engagement and accommodation? Is all of this reshaping and redefining relationships? This course will focus on a wide-lens optic of global relationships and its impact on American foreign policy and America’s future.
