ASIA 3002 - Australia and the Asia-Pacific

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2018

The course is designed to provide students of Asian and international studies with some of the essential conceptual and analytical tools for understanding Australia's Asian context. It also serves as an introduction to Australia's relations with Asia which will be of interest to a wide range of students, especially those whose future jobs might be related to a particular Asian country or to the Asia-Pacific region. The first part of the course examines selected thematic issues such as defence and security, Australian aid, immigration and refugee policy, while the latter part focuses on Australia's major bilateral and multilateral relationships in the Asia-Pacific region. It is expected that on completing this course students will have acquired a basic understanding of the issues involved in Australia's relations with the Asia-Pacific.
