POLIS 7004 - International Politics in the Post Cold War World

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2019

The notions of leadership and power have been important sources of debate since the end of the Cold War, and most notably in the Asia-Pacific region. Questions of succession, the role of the state in generating economic growth and social stability and the possibility of divining an 'Asian model' that other states could emulate have all figured prominently in shaping stimulating perspectives on the conduct of politics and nation-building. This course examines the foundations of power and the nature of Asian leadership in the region, focussing on the ideologies, forms of political organisation and the rationales for rule.
