Thesis

THE ASIA-PACIFIC STRATEGIC ORDER AND AN INDO-PACIFIC RESPONSE: A REGIONAL RESPONSE TO THE RISE OF CHINA

Summary

The aims of the research project are focused on acquiring a deeper understanding surrounding the concept of the ‘Indo-Pacific’ and also obtaining a fuller comprehension as to the reasoning behind its recent inception. Why have Australia and other key regional states recently reconceptualised the strategic region as the ‘Indo-Pacific’?

Why my research is important

The rise of China is causing a transformation in regional power dynamics. For a region that will be ultimately defined either by cooperation or conflict, successfully managing the ongoing relationship between the major Asia-Pacific powers is pivotal for the international economy and moreover, ongoing global security.
