Aims/Description: This module examines the foreign policies of the two Koreas and their neighbours in Northeast Asia from 1970 until today. Drawing on theories of comparative foreign policy, it identifies the roles of individual leaders, domestic political dynamics, and the international environment as shaping forces of the foreign policies of the two Koreas and their neighbours (China, Japan, the United States, and Russia). It also examines recent diplomatic practice in northeast Asia, in the light of established theories and the history of international relations
