GOVT 85.32 International Politics of South Asia

IR theories are concerned with general factors shaping war and peace in the international system. Are these general theories useful for explaining conflict and cooperation in a strategically important region like South Asia or do we need specific analytical tools for that purpose? This seminar will explore the strengths and limits of IR theories by applying them to an array of South Asian security issues, including inter-state rivalries, civil wars, nuclear proliferation and terrorism.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
