GMA 345 - Asian Security

Class Hours: 3, Units: 3
General Education: Area D Social Science - upper division
This survey course in contemporary Asian regional and national security is a fairly challenging 300-level course designed primarily for GSMA majors and minors with a strong interest in international politics. Just how dangerous disputes in the region are, what the elements of regional security are, which countries’ actions should be treated as threats to security, and what forms of cooperation best safeguard security are among the divisive issues examined. Though military and strategic concerns are addressed, the course puts great emphasis on the generally neglected areas of human, environmental and resource security, and issues of sustainable development and social justice. Everyone enrolled in the class should have a serious interest in contemporary security issues and a willingness to work hard.
