Details International Relations of Southeast Asia The Policy Process After Vietnam Afghanistan and Iraq Rules Governing Intervention Most SA After Vietnam Afghanistan and Iraq Rules Governing Intervention Most SAIS courses convey knowledge but do not teach the process of policy making This course is designed to make you think like a policy maker by requiring you to devise in a group context policy solutions to a problem that has bedeviled American foreign policy makers for generations In Vietnam Iraq and Afghanistan very substantial American economic political and military resources were applied to nation building projects that either produced sub optimal results Iraq and Afghanistan or failed outright Vietnam The outcomes of the Vietnam Iraq and Afghan wars challenge the American nation building model law and order economic growth human rights civil society democratic elections can create peaceful and stable democracies This policy making simulation is designed to analyze past mistakes and devise a new doctrine to minimize the probability of unsuccessful interventions in the future As a group of SAIS students you must devise criteria for intervention to preclude repetition of the worst consequences suffered in Vietnam Afghanistan and Iraq One possible conclusion is Never again This is what my generation said after 1975 but international events force the hands of decision makers who under great pressure reinvent the mistakes of the past One day 9 11 2001 temporarily dissolved the American reluctance to commit troops abroad The erosion of national boundaries ease of transportation and the rise of transnational terrorist organizations will all generate situations in which the U S will be tempted to intervene By analyzing the three nation building efforts retrospectively what lessons should the U S government learn in order to avoid or at least mitigate future failures The failures have been strategic wrong commitment wrong war wrong place wrong time cultural inappropriate theories applied to the wrong context capabilities driven lack of appropriately configured civilian and military capabilities and political unrealistic goals in combination with the severe time limits imposed by American democracy on all foreign commitments The U S government needs a more realistic doctrine to guide future interventions and in this course you are expected to produce it In the first few weeks of the course you will read what experts think about the short comings of the three most extensive experiments in nation building In the remainder of the course as a group you will be expected to move beyond the experts to create your own solutions to these seemingly intractable problems This is an exercise in policy thinking rather than rote learning it is about the unknown future rather than the settled past The skills demanded for successful policy making are substantially the same across all large organizations the capacity to do high quality research under intense time pressure skill in written and oral expression and the ability to negotiate trade offs with other participants in the policy process You will need these skills in the future regardless of whether the institution is a multi lateral organization a government a business a local government or an NGO For Southeast Asia Studies concentrators this course fulfills a Southeast Asia Studies course credit if the student is selected to do a Southeast Asian specific topic Otherwise the course fulfills an Asian wide course credit This is also a cross listed course that can fulfill a requirement for International Development Course Number SA 755 702 Campus Washington D C Term Fall 2015 Faculty Karl Jackson 36 Spring 2016 Show Details Myanmar Burma Inside Challenges Outside Interests Myanmar Burma is in the process of a challenging transition from a centraliz Myanmar Burma is in the process of a challenging transition from a centralized authoritarian military run political system to a pluralistic disciplined flourishing democracy from a socialist then dirigiste economy to one more market oriented and open to foreign investment from a society characterized by personalized power to institutional norms from centralized media and social control to one more open from a single dominant ethnic group to a more multicultural system and from a skewed foreign policy to a more balanced approach to international affairs This attempt at transition in less than half a decade is virtually unprecedented in Asia Such a complex set of changes is difficult inviting a clash of vested interests historical memories foreign pressures and advocacy and resulting in asynchronous growth and change Myanmar Burma Challenges of Transition explores the nature of these challenges their likely trajectories the roles of foreign pressures and planning and the lessons that might be drawn from such a complex process The course objectives are 1 to understand the internal and external dynamics of political socio economic and security change in a Southeast Asian democratizing state 2 to examine the nature process and inherent difficulties of Myanmar Burma s democratic transition and 3 to research and write an original paper on the challenges of transition in Myanmar of sufficient quality to merit submission to an academic journal The course will be taught by a team of specialists on Myanmar This is a cross listed course that can fulfill a requirement for International Development and Conflict Management Course Number SA 770 752 Campus Washington D C Term Spring

of the last two years have brought Southeast Asia back into the spotlight of international relations for the first time in twenty years The American pivot to Asia the diplomatic and economic opening of Myanmar disunity within ASEAN and the possibility of conflict over islets and shoals in the South China or West Philippine Sea have altered the status quo and raised questions about the long term intentions of the United States China and the Southeast Asian nations Why have all major actors taken stances in Southeast Asia that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago All of the data on international behavior are constantly in motion and students of all ages remain frustrated by their inability to make sense of the ever expanding array of events actors and interpretations In Southeast Asia as elsewhere international controversies and day to day policies not to mention the changing statements of political leaders and political parties present an almost bewilderingly series of factors any combination of which might or might not account for a country or a regional organization s behaviors The trick of the first rate analyst in a government bank or an NGO is to find a method for determining Why Do Nations Do What They Do This course uses the nations of Southeast Asia as a laboratory for answering this question at multiple levels of individual nation states the regional organization ASEAN and in the context of international political system as a whole Hence this course stresses general analytic skills rather than just facts about Southeast Asia The purpose is to impart a method that will retain value even after all of the facts have changed and even if you find your eventual professional focus far from Southeast Asia Although this is a foundational course for Southeast Asia concentrators it is actually a methods course suitable for all foreign policy analysts rather than being restricted to Asian studies concentrators This is a cross listed course that can also fulfill a requirement for International Development Course Number SA 770 712 Campus Washington D C Term Spring 2016 Faculty Karl Jackson 36 Fall 2015 Show Details Political Economy of Indonesia Since 1968 Asia has witnessed the greatest reduction in poverty in the history Since 1968 Asia has witnessed the greatest reduction in poverty in the history of mankind as a result of the jobs and wealth generated primarily by burgeoning private sectors All of this has taken place under governments that in varying degrees have provided neither dependable legal systems nor rules based systems to protect domestic or foreign investors from unreasonable demands This course will be about economic development in Indonesia one of the most corrupt nations in the world that averaged more than 7 annual GDP growth for almost 30 years 1968 1998 It examines the dynamics of power business and politics in Indonesia The course begins with a review of modern Indonesian history its political social and economic development and the crises that have brought chaos and opportunity to the world s most populous Muslim state This is a cross listed course that can also fulfill a requirement for International Development Course Number SA 770 611 Campus Washington D C Term Fall 2015 Faculty Karl Jackson 36 Vikram Nehru 38 Fall 2015 Show Details Covert Action and Foreign Policy in Asia A government seeking to influence another government or events organizations A government seeking to influence another government or events organizations conditions attitudes or behavior in another state or territory has a range of instruments available from diplomacy to sanctions to the use of military force Covert action differs from other instruments of statecraft in an important way States use covert action techniques to influence others and gain power but they do so in ways designed to mask their own role and sponsorship Covert action is sometimes confused with clandestine intelligence collection or espionage While covert action operations may employ similar methods covert action s function of policy implementation makes it distinctly different than the function of information gathering The objectives of this course are 1 to understand the nature and principles of covert action how it is employed to achieve foreign policy objectives and its capabilities and limitations 2 to analyze critically the record of covert action as an instrument of foreign policy in Asia and 3 to acquire experience in constructing and briefing a covert action operational plan The course will begin with a review of the national security policy setting in which decisions to use covert actions operations are made We will move quickly into the principles of covert action the means and techniques involved in its employment and its early history as an instrument of U S and other countries foreign policy We will then analyze a series of covert action cases from the early days of the Cold War to the Global War on Terror efforts to counter nuclear weapons proliferation and the Arab Spring Cases will be taken from China Philippines Indonesia Vietnam Laos Afghanistan Yemen Iran Libya and Syria To gain realistic experience in covert action planning we will divide into groups to prepare presidential findings write covert action operational plans and brief them to the class For Southeast Asia Studies concentrators this course fulfills a Southeast Asia Studies course credit if course work focuses on a Southeast Asia topic This is a cross listed course that can also fulfill a requirement for the Strategic Studies Program Course Number SA 755 712 Campus Washington D C Term Fall 2015 Faculty William Wise 37 Fall 2015 Show Details Current Asian Security Issues In this course students will gain an appreciation for the breadth and depth of s In this course students will gain an appreciation for the breadth and depth of security problems facing Asia Pacific states and peoples and develop skills in analyzing and explaining traditional and non traditional security issues The course will examine internal transnational and regional security issues and investigate potential areas of conflict in South Southeast and East Asia A key objective of the course is to develop an understanding of how different Asian states construe the meaning of security why states and non state actors behave the way they do in the security realm and how they anticipate and manage correctly or otherwise the consequences of their actions The course also provides an opportunity to build professional writing skills In Fall 2015 the course will focus on the following themes Regional security implications of the rise of China Changing Indian and Japanese thinking on national security Potential conflict flashpoints such as the East and South China Seas Korea Taiwan and Kashmir Maritime security and naval modernization in Asia Geopolitics of energy security and climate change in Asia Internal conflicts in India Burma Thailand and the Philippines The U S pivot to Asia and Prospects for regional security architecture in Asia The course is unique in that it will be taught by two professors both experts in their respective subjects Each instructor will be available to students during the entire course This is a cross listed course that can also fulfill a requirement for the Strategic Studies Program and Russian and Eurasian Studies Course Number SA 755 704 Campus Washington D C Term Fall 2015 Faculty William Wise 37 Marvin Ott 39 Spring 2016 Show Details Political Leadership in Southeast Asia Throughout the world political leaders believe they personally influence the cou Throughout the world political leaders believe they personally influence the course of international events and that their interactions with other leaders form one of the most if not the single most important variable in international outcomes Similar conclusions on the vitality of leadership have been reached in the business world and among NGOs leadership really counts And yet contemporary political science and international relations shy away from analyzing different types of leaders and the mysteries of followership because these critical variables are not readily accommodated by contemporary social science methodology This course is dedicated to two obvious propositions Leaders alter the course of history Leadership cannot be ignored by any comprehensive attempt to explain international relations This course is primarily about the study of leaders and their followers and only secondarily about Southeast Asia The first four weeks of the course cover leaders as diverse as Woodrow Wilson Lyndon Johnson Huey Long Mao and Hitler before moving into Southeast Asia Students from diverse concentrations are encouraged to participate and their term paper topics are not limited to Southeast Asian subjects The history of Southeast Asia after 1945 is best understood through the impact of a dozen leaders on the historical circumstances in which they lived Ho Chi Minh Sihanouk Pol Pot Sukarno Prem Tinsulanond Suharto Magsaysay Marcos Aquino Ne Win Lee Kuan Yew Mahathir Sarit Thanarat Thaksin Shinawatra and His Majesty King Bhumiphol This course will put flesh on the bones of Southeast Asian history by exploring the lives and times of these leaders their faults and virtues their blind stupidities and blinding insights their paralysis in the face of historic challenges and their capacity to act decisively Course Number SA 770 721 Campus Washington D C Term Spring 2016 Faculty Karl Jackson 36 Spring 2016 Show Details Research Seminar on Intelligence Politics and Policy in Asia This is a research seminar in which students will explore the nature purpose s This is a research seminar in which students will explore the nature purpose structure and operations of intelligence and security services in East and Southeast Asia and the changing relationships among intelligence politics and policy in those regions Asia s rulers traditionally employed intelligence and security services to monitor and repress real and imagined domestic opponents In some cases the techniques and strategies of intelligence were home grown in others they were learned from former colonial masters and Japanese occupiers both skillful in using intelligence organizations to maintain political control and suppress independence movements Governments of newly independent states in the region often competing for legitimacy with domestic political rivals worried more about consolidating power than preparing to meet external threats During the Cold War such strategic intelligence on external threats as was needed often came from foreign allies such as the U S UK and Soviet Union The post Cold War and post 9 11 environment hastened and expanded intelligence training and the exchange of intelligence information among friendly states and even between potential adversaries concerned with similar threats The 21st century brings new challenges to the governments of Asia and to their intelligence and security services First the process of political change is forcing many governments not only to justify the role of their intelligence and security services in changing political circumstances but often to subject these instruments of state control to parliamentary and public view Second the emergence of non traditional transnational threats terrorism narcotics trafficking human trafficking pandemics
