Guest Lecturer:
Dr. Hoo Chiew Ping, Strategic Studies & International Relations Program, National University of Malaysia (UKM)

Description:
In the 1980s, the United States first engaged the DPRK through the "Modest Initiative", while simultaneously confronting North Korea over its nuclear development program. Since then, U.S.-DPRK relations have had their ups and downs and questions still remain regarding how best to manage North Korean nuclear, missile, and military provocations and which is the right approach to use to convince North Korea to denuclearize. In 2018, when the DPRK declared itself a de facto nuclear-armed state, the Trump Administration swiftly changed its approach from "Fire and Fury" to conducting summits. In 2019, summit diplomacy lost its magic and the COVID-19 pandemic brought everything to a halt. Both Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-in mooted the idea of declaring an end to the Korean War in 2021. From an ethical, geostrategic, and non-major stakeholder's perspective, this talk will highlight the major contentions surrounding the notion of "engaging North Korea."

TIU Global Dialogue 14: Re-Orienting the History of International Relations

This event has ended

In 1685, a Persian embassy from the Safavid Empire (Iran) embarked upon a journey across the Indian Ocean to Siam (Thailand). A relic of this journey is the diplomatic account the Safīna-i Sulaimānī - the Ship of Sulaimān - written by the scribe of the Persian envoy. On the basis of this primary Persian source and other materials, Dr. Anahita Arian unsettles in this talk the conventional and Eurocentric narratives about the history of international relations in which Europe is routinely identified as the most powerful center and agent of the world economy, and as the geo-cultural space where international relations and diplomacy emerged in the early modern period from where on it 'expanded' to the rest of the world. In contrast to this narrative, Dr. Arian discusses the centrality of Asia in the history of international relations, particularly for the Safavid Empire, and illustrates the relations that the Safavid Empire maintained (sometimes through intermediaries) with South East Asian polities, such as Thailand. Aside from examining how the Safavids encountered and perceived the kingdom of Thailand, what is further discussed, on the basis of the Safīna-i Sulaimānī, is the Persian envoy's familiarization and understandings of the culture, customs, religion and political orders of Japan (the Tokugawa shogunate), the Aceh Sultanate, China, and Burma (the Toungoo Kingdom), and these polities respective relations with Europeans and/or other polities providing an insight into the international relations of the seventeenth century. This discussion is concluded with a reflection about the urgent need for more non-Eurocentric historiography about the history of international relations and what the possibilities and prospects are for such research endeavors.
