How can we conceptualise order in one of the most dynamic regions in the world? In this module you will critically examine the nature, evolution and challenges to regional order in East Asia. You will begin by considering the key theoretical and analytical perspectives on regional order as well as the role of history in shaping East Asian regionalism and regional dynamics. You will then proceed to examine contemporary security challenges and institutional architecture-building in East Asia, and their implications for the maintenance of regional peace and stability.
