China's Role in a World Order in Flux

Return to Course Catalog

Fall 2013 Reading Group
Meets: Th 8:00pm - 10:00pm in WCC Room 5048
1 classroom credit

This Reading Group will examine the role that China has been playing in a world order in flux. Models of development, trade, and rights are among the areas likely to be addressed. We will consider, inter alia, China’s engagement of existing global norms, ways in which China may (or may not) now or in the foreseeable future be shaping such norms, and their impact on China. The intention is to hold some of our likely 6 2-hour sessions of the Reading Group jointly with a comparable class at Renmin University of China, via electronic means – hence, our evening meeting times. The class will have no prerequisites.

Note: All class sessions scheduled after November 3, 2013 will meet from 7pm to 9pm.

Subject Areas: International, Comparative & Foreign Law .
