POLS 445/560 Topics in Globalization and Governance: China in the World

(Fall 2014, Tuesdays 12:30-3:20pm)

"In the advent of China's potential rise as a world power, the nation's
domestic and foreign policy decisions are increasingly having a global
impact. This course will examine China's ascent within the framework of
contemporary social, political and economic developments.

The ascendancy of China in the global arena leads us to many questions
including: What is the meaning of China's place on the world stage and how
is it constructed? What are the social, political and economic forces
driving China's ascendancy? The course will cover some of the key events
that have shaped China since 1978, including the tensions of economic reform
and its impact on current state-society relations. We will examine China's
engagement with different parts of the world to comprehend how China locates
itself and how it is received by others."
