国際安全保障研究:政治学系(International Conflict Study)

Introduction to International Conflicts
What is an international conflict? Will it be possible to discuss the origins of international conflicts in the abstract, or would it be that the distinct character of each conflict rules out theoretical abstraction? How, and in what way, can we relate the conflicts that we observe each day to the ones that have been studied in the past decades? Those are the questions that will guide our journey.
In this seminar, we will discuss various conceptual approaches to international conflicts. These approaches need not be new; many of them date back to the court diplomacy in post-medieval Europe, while others emerged out of the period following the end of the Cold War. Our purpose here will be to examine the utilities of old and new concepts in the light of present-day conflicts. Please be advised that this is an introductory course that only offers brief overview of the terrain in which international conflicts take place.

授業の方法
The course will be given in English, including my brief introductory remarks, instructions, and questions. Although this may sound like a tall order to those whose mother tongue is not so, you will soon find out that language is not the real problem, for the challenge is to be logically sound and articulate. This course will be offered online, using Zoom software. The URL is as follows. https://u-tokyo-ac-jp.zoom.us/***** The meeting ID is *****. Due to possible communication errors, the first meeting will be more of an attempt to connect to all of you, a process which may extend to our next meeting. After a brief introduction to the agenda and academic literature, I will ask a number of questions, first of which are listed in this syllabus. The reading materials can be downloaded from the ITC-LMS portal site (https://itc-lms.ecc.u-tokyo.ac.jp/*****). If you have difficulties in downloading the materials, please log in to the University of Tokyo Article Link at ejournal.dl.itc.u-tokyo.ac.jp, and download the full text. From June 18th to July 9th, you must conduct your own research on the conflict listed on this this syllabus, and prepare your own answer to the provided questions. You will be asked to prepare for a group presentation in class by power point slides. The class will be divided into groups of no more than 6 students (chosen arbitrary by the instructor).
成績評価方法
Grading will be based on participation in class and the final examination in late July (dates to be noted), in a form of a take hope examination to be delivered in 72 hours.
