INTR12-210: East-West International Diplomacy


This subject examines the tension between Eastern and Western diplomatic cultures especially in the 21st century. Historically Asian & Western nations have shared a common problem: appropriate cultural responses to changing international environments that have resulted in distinct diplomatic styles. The aim here is to familiarise students with the points of convergence and divergence of Western and Eastern diplomacy and political economy through case study methodology.
