授業の内容や構成
Course Content / Plan
This course, intended as an introduction to International Relations (IR), deals with two broad topics: (1) politics among great powers and international order (especially in the context of COVID-19 and U.S.-China relations) and (2) global governance for sustainable development. The former focuses on U.S.-China relations and their implications for Japan and international order while the latter zeros in on how stakeholders attempt to attain sustainable development (including coping with COVID-19).

(1) The rise of China has been a hot topic among both practitioners and scholars of foreign affairs. Of late, pundits have come to describe the contemporary U.S.-China relations as a New Cold War. This pattern of the rise and fall of great powers, Realists argue, have characterized international relations since ancient Greek period. What do China and the U.S. want? Do leaders (i.e., Xi Jinping and Trump) matter? Or are they just falling prey to international systemic pressures that give rise to power politics? Have globalization and new technologies changed this allegedly recurrent pattern? These are samples of questions that "mainstream" International Relations scholars have asked, and that we will ask and discuss in the first part of this course. We will examine both Western views and Chinese views in order to see the phenomena from different angles.

(2) Global issues and challenges abound—climate change, water scarcity, hunger, poverty, forced migration, infectious diseases, and human rights violations, to name but a few. These issues are now bundled under the banner of sustainable development. The second part of this course serves as an introduction to Global Governance—a subfield of IR that focuses on who (not only governments) governs what (not just issues that directly affects national security), why (not merely maximizing national interests), and how (not only through binding laws backed by material sanctions) regarding global (multilevel and "glocal") issues and challenges.

The classes will tentatively be organized as follows (kindly note that they are subject to change depending on the situation):

1. Introduction on International Relations (IR)
2. Realist theories
3. Liberalist theories
4. Constructivist theories
5. Feminist theories
6. Domestic politics
7. Bureaucratic politics
8. Cognitive and psychological approaches
9-15. Cases: COVID^19, U.S.-China relations, Japan's foreign relations, and sustainable development
