INTR12-201: Strategic India


This subject introduces students to South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bhutan and the Tibetan-Government-in-exile) as a diverse and unique region as well as an increasingly important political, economic, strategic and cultural one within international relations. The formation of the states of South Asia are historically explored to develop students’ understanding of contemporary issues such as Indian and Pakistani acquisition of nuclear weapons, the conflict over Kashmir, Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, and the Afghanistan, Taliban, Al-Qaeda, 'War on Terror' nexus. These contemporary issues are considered as examples of regional relations and explored for links to international relations. This subject builds knowledge of how South Asia has contributed to and been impacted on by international relations beyond its own region.
