Fall 2022 Course

Re-imagining global order as Asia re-emerges

Prerequisite: None

Exam Type: No Exam

The re-emergence of Asia is posing conceptual and practical challenges to understandings of and frameworks for global order that were  ascendant throughout the latter half of the 20th century. This workshop will examine the content of those challenges and what that suggests about the prospects for global order in the 21st century. Within Asia, the workshop is likely to focus principally on East and South Asia.

The workshop will draw on leading scholars from within and outside the US, predominantly but not exclusively, in law. We anticipate that the workshop will address economic, human rights, environmental and other issues.  Students will be expected to do several short reaction papers on work-in-progress by our guests and will have the opportunity to engage with them in class. The workshop has no prerequisites.
