INTR13-315: Africa and the Middle East


This subject provides students with an understanding of two regions with a powerful impact on the international system: Africa and the Middle East. Their histories, politics, cultures and economies are woven into a study of the wider strategic significance of these regions in global affairs. Areas of interest include resources and development, conflict zones and terrorism, Sino-African engagement, and the changing geopolitical landscape on the Arabian peninsula. Through a thematic approach and case studies, students gain an insight into the dynamics of these regions, and the implications for regional and international stability.
