Course Syllabus

Abstract

During this course it will be studied several important problems and issues of Asian Studies which are important for the better understanding of development of East Asia. We approach the sociocultural premises of foreign policy in East Asia, which often remain implicit yet invite direct inquiry. The idea of the course is a comparative analysis of both political and economic aspects of this policy through developing inductive research design and thorough qualitative research study. The course is based on the interactive principle and qualitative research methods; the students are encouraged to participate in the discussions over the key problems within world politics in the era of globalization. The assessment of the course includes a creative research portfolio and its oral presentation in the class.
