CHINA IN A CHANGING WORLD with Dr Sarah Teitt
As a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and major world economy with extensive overseas development projects, China is an integral player in global efforts to address some of the most pressing security challenges in the world today.
This course will critically examine China’s international policies and diplomacy toward such issues as climate change, counter-terrorism, human rights, sustainable development and mass atrocities prevention. It will consider the key economic, political, social and normative factors that shape China’s foreign policy and diplomacy on these issues, and examine the impact of China on broader efforts to strengthen institutional and collective response to new security challenges. By examining the complexity and nuance of China’s position on a range on non-traditional security issues, the course aims to provide students with a deeper understanding of China’s global engagement in a changing world.
