ASNS6910 - War and Peace in East Asia

Semester 2, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Lionel Babicz


This unit examines the history of conflicts which occurred between China, Japan and Korea in the 20th Century. Although some of these conflicts are in the past, many remain unresolved until the present. East Asian historical controversies, the activity of governments, grassroots and academic groups working towards sustainable peace in the region and the role of new media in promoting intra-regional reconciliation will be examined. The conflicting approaches to regional peace, cooperation and reunification will help students understanding the contemporary issues, which continue impeding reconciliation in East Asia.
