The ‘rise’ of Asia is a premise of contemporary international relations, with the relative power of Asian states increasing and progressively influencing global outcomes for peoples, organisations, firms and states. This subject explores the changes in power in historical perspective and employs a political economy approach to analyse the actual changes in the bases of power. You will study the policies of modern China and India as the principle Asian states to understand their relationship and its contemporary challenges. You will also learn about relations between these states and other Asian states such as Japan and Pakistan. Asia’s rising powers’ impact on the global system is scrutinised through consideration of the South China Sea and territorial disputes, development initiates such as Make in India and the Belt Road Initiative; and regional concepts such as Indo-Pacific and Australia’s Strategic South West Pacific. The subject will expand your knowledge and skills necessary to work in organisations (e.g., United Nations, Red Cross, World Bank), firms (e.g., BHP, Macquarie Bank, General Electric) and government (e.g., Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, State Department, Defence Department).
