This unit introduces students to the most critical political and security issues facing the Asia-Pacific region today, including North Korea's nuclear armament, territorial disputes over the South China Sea, resource scarcity, disease and transnational crime, all of which is contextualised amidst historical legacies, nationalist movements, and the rise of democratic institutions.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Identify and describe key concepts used in politics and security studies;
2. Apply and compare the main foundational theories in security studies;
3. Analyse and evaluate the major structural changes in the Asia-Pacific and their political ramifications;
4. Examine contemporary security issues and conceptualise these problems in their historical contexts; and
