Abstract

The purpose of this course is to analyze how political relations with a foreign country affect bilateral economic relations and trade. It focuses on the development of the relationship between the three most powerful countries of the Asia-Pacific region – China, Japan, and the Republic of Korea from the 90s of the 20th century to the present day. Special attention will be paid to the complex Japan-China, China-South Korea, and Japan-South Korea relations at the beginning of the 21st century. The topics included in the course are aimed at provoking discussions and debates to consider crises from different perspectives. Using knowledge about the researched region, students will have to make a report at the seminar on one of the topics, as well as actively participate in discussions and debates, which is part of the current control. At the end of each module, students submit an essay in which they demonstrate the skills of systematic thinking and analysis of political and economic events in the region. To do this, students will be required to understand and analyze not only the academic literature but also the official development strategies of these countries and the news agenda of each of the parties.
