China’s International Relations (1949-present) (Module)

Module description

This module critically engages with discussions and debates about China's emergence as a great power, whilst rejecting the privileging of any particular approach to explaining Chinese foreign policy. You will learn applied analytical approaches and the most up to date knowledge in historical and comparative perspectives of the development in Chinese foreign policy thinking and behavior, exploring the relationship between International Relations (political science) and the study of an area (China), and reflecting on strategies for integrating political theory with the production of area-specific knowledge.
