This course is designed to introduce students at the graduate level to the international relations system of Southeast Asia and the foreign policies of the Southeast Asian states.

A major focus of the examination of the issues and dynamics of Southeast Asia's international relations will be the impetus toward and impediments to the development of regionalism. A subtheme will be analysis of conflict and conflict resolution within the regional international relations environment.
