ARST 457 - China-Arab Relations
The purpose of this course is to introduce students to some of the most significant aspects of the Sino-Arab Relations through the six decades since the founding of the People's Republic. Due to the multiple dimensions of China's interaction with the Middle East in general and with various Arab states/areas in particular, this course will be divided in two parts: in sessions 1-6 we will examine the general history of China’s foreign policy and of Sino-Arab relations in different time periods; while in sessions 7-13 we will focus on China’s position regarding many specific issues, such as Syria, Sudan, and Iraq. The last session will be a discussion about the future of Chinese-Arab Relations and its possible impact on the world order.
