JSIS A 434 / POL S 434 – International Relations of South Asia is a 400 level course for undergrads that does not require prior exposure to South Asia. India, Pakistan and other countries in the region have been in the news because of recent developments like the Indo-Pacific Strategy, and China’s One Belt One Road Initiative. However, South Asia has been the focus of U.S. security and foreign policies from the early days of the Cold War. The course is designed to offer perspectives on how South Asia has connected to the American view of world, and has acted as a theater of American grand strategy since the end of World War II. Further, the course explores possible future trajectories for the region at this time of great geopolitical change, and what they mean for the United States.
