Southeast Asia, home to three major religious cultures and various regime types, is one of the most politically and socially diverse regions of the world. While the region is unique for its diversity, its states face challenges that are common in other parts of the world including globalization; adjusting to the new geopolitical landscape of rising global powers; and external pressure to improve the standards of human rights, the environment and democracy. Given this dynamic political context, this course is designed to give students a greater understanding of the problems and prospects of the region, as well as the ability to assess its efforts to adapt to the changing regional and international environment.
