Description

A new global order is arising and Northeast Asia is at the heart of it. How will China’s Rise affect global politics? Will the US have to accommodate China’s rising military power, or will it confront it? How stable is North Korea? Will energy security bring the countries of Northeast Asia together, or will it set them against each other? This course examines the changing global order, how it is being shaped in Northeast Asia, and the implications of this for New Zealand.
