General description

The Eagle Meets the Dragon: Shifts and Tensions in U.S.–East Asia Relations, 2 ECTS

For the past decades, East Asia has been firmly under U.S. hegemony, but predictions abound that the post-WWII and Cold War world-order is gradually giving way to a new one. Today, the relations between the countries are strained and in a flux. How, then, to make sense of the current power shifts and entanglements in the region? How the peoples and politicians of the countries involved view the situation and mutual relations? And where are U.S.–East Asia relations heading to? These are the questions addressed in the seminar.

Students can earn 2 ECTS credits by attending the seminar and writing a 6–8-page report.
