IAS 402 - The Meaning Of National Security In The 21St Century

This seminar will examine how national security concerns are understood by three world powers in the twenty-first century: the U.S., China, and India. During the semester, students will work in three teams representing the U.S., PRC, and India. Each team will research and represent their country's position before coming together for debate. In addition to WU faculty, colleagues from Fudan University in Shanghai and Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi will visit to give presentations during the semester. The course curriculum is also divided into three general clusters: for the first month, we will focus on the role of nuclear weapons and "hard power" in national security; the second month will broaden the scope with nontraditional security issues and the "soft power" of these three nations; the final third will focus on how the perspectives of these three powers come into contact and conflict, culminating in a security "crisis simulation" with all three teams. Finally, after completing the course in spring semester, students will have the option of participating in a working meeting in Shanghai, May 27-29, 2016. Faculty members and students from Washington University, Fudan University, and JNU will participate in this conference. Enrollment in the course is limited, and preference will be given to students who participate in the Shanghai conference. INSTRUCTOR PERMISSION IS REQUIRED TO ENROLL IN THE COURSE.
