China-West Relations: Dilemmas and Lessons

Available dates:

To be confirmed

Duration:

5 hours (self-paced)

The rise of China in the Liberal International Order has caused much frenzy and uncertainty across the Western civil society. China as a cultural and political entity creates anxiety in those parts of the world where liberalism has dominated for decades if not centuries. Citizens, policy-makers, and military are still catching up on their knowledge of China and cannot confidently deconstruct the complexity of a country that hosts a fifth of humanity and whose foreign interactions have been characterized by much ambiguity. This course seeks to explore those areas of ambiguity where Chinese actions are causing security dilemmas for Western citizens, administrators, policy-makers and the military and to expand knowledge on China but also to learn lessons that can be applied in other areas of foreign/security policy. To achieve this aim, the course is structured around several topics, each of which seeks to address a “dilemma” related to China, by looking at a contemporary “case-study” while leveraging on an “academic concept” to stimulate lateral thinking.
