The course aims at introducing to the students political relations in Northeast Asia, conceived here as a conglomerate of international relations encompassing China, Taiwan, Korean Peninsula and Japan. From the perspective of security studies, this is one of the key regions for international stability, given the high stakes in its future development not only by the local actors but also external powers, particularly the United States.

Topics covered in the course are divided into three groups. The first group introduces the regional dynamics from the systemic perspective, examining its origins, logic of functioning and boundaries vis-a-vis the adjoining regions. Secondly, the course takes a look inside the states which constitute the region, examining the security implications of politics in China, Taiwan, Korea and Japan. The final group of lectures then analyses major regional flashpoints and their proclivity to armed conflict.
