Course Aims

This course aims to develop students’ understanding of governance and integration processes in the region. East Asia is coming together.  Since the late 1990s there has been a dramatic upsurge in both the scope and depth of regional integration activities being undertaken in both Southeast Asia and Northeast Asia as well as between these two regions.  But how and why is this happening?  This course is designed to expose students to contemporary processes of regionalism and governance within Asia.  It does so through a combination of lectures intended to expose students to the rapid developments in regional institutions and other mechanisms (the ‘how’) as well as the changing ideals and norms that underpin these developments (the ‘why’).
