Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The course offers an in-depth exploration of the interplay between autocratisation processes and international cooperation in the dynamic region of Asia-Pacific. As the Asia-Pacific region undergoes significant political and economic transformations, this course aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities that arise from the rise of autocratic tendencies and the impact on regional and global cooperation. Throughout the course, students will critically analyse the causes, manifestations, and consequences of autocratisation in various countries across the Asia-Pacific region. The course elaborates on complex factors driving autocratic tendencies, including domestic political dynamics, economic development, and societal factors. Furthermore, the classes shed light on the intricate relationship between autocratisation and international cooperation. Students will explore how autocratic regimes engage with regional and global institutions, the challenges they pose to democratic norms, and the impact on regional security, economic integration, and governance.
