Course DescriptionThis course will examine the foreign relations between the People’s Republic of China’s and the Third World during the Cold War. Asia, Africa and Latin America were pivotal in the global struggle for influence between the United States, the Soviet Union and the People’s Republic of China. Moreover, the competition between capitalism and communism in the Third World contributed to the evolution of many of the states, ideologies and movements that shape international politics today. The course will place a particular emphasis on the following topics: China’s position in the Cold War, the role of ideology, decolonization and the response of the Cold War powers, and the political economy of the Third World during the Cold War. We will look at several of the most prominent examples of each of these phenomena. Although this course is global in its scope, it of course cannot cover all aspects of the topic. The particular emphasis will be placed on Sino-African relations and less so on Latin America. The format of the course is, for the most part, a discussion-based seminar. It will introduce students to historical research and writing methods as they produce an original research paper based on primary sources. It will also give them the opportunity to think creatively through writing their own policy memoranda. Students should come away from this course with a greater understanding of a region of the world that will become increasingly important over the course of the twenty-first century.

The BRI aims to promote connectivity in the fields of trade, infrastructure, currency through multi-layered collaboration among relevant countries and international organizations. The projects under the BRI are expected to connect the vibrant East Asia economic circle and other economic circles in the world. The BRI may help in consolidating China’s status as the largest developing country and promoting South-South cooperation. The course would explain how the BRI is consequential in terms of affecting the development and regional cooperation models in Central Asia, the Middle East, South Asia and other related areas. In addition, students will be asked to make their own inquiries into examples and cases of China’s enlarging footprints in the developing countries. Through the combination of lectures, readings, and case studies, the course may assist students to obtain a more informed and balanced understanding of China’s changing role on the world stage and its significant impact to other countries in the 21st century.
