Offered online by Open Universities Australia in partnership with Mac-quarie University, this unit looks at Australia’s security in the Indo-Pacific region. You will study the way in which strategic trends have changed in this region, paying special attention to the economic and military rise of China and India.
You will also study debates about the role of the USA in the region and Australia’s situation as a ‘middle power’ with vested interests in the re-gions security and stability.
