Indo-Chinese Relations

This module intends to acquaint students with Indo-Chinese relations in the modern era. The module will build on what students learned about the history of India and China, and will address impacts of decisions and policies made by both countries. The conflicts, international relations, and use of influence regionally and internationally by both countries will be understood from the perspective of Bhutan and other Himalayan territories. Students will thus appreciate how the Indo-Chinese relationship has changed over time, and how it continues to affect all territories in the Himalayan region. As honors graduates are expected to excel in the job market for internationally-focused positions, it will be useful for these students to gain an in-depth knowledge of current international influence and developments in India and China, as they are the big neighbors of every Himalayan territory.
