During the Winter Semester we will continue to examine the foreign policy of the People’s Republic of China as it relates to Taiwan, the militarization of the South China Sea, the Philippines, Vietnam, Japan, the Koreas, India and Pakistan. By building on our understanding of China’s hegemonic goals, we will examine how the benign economic goals of the Belt & Road Initiative have potential political and military applications as well.
