International Relations and Asian Studies – promoting dialogue about key strategic issues

2021 (TBC)

Conveners: Professor Anthony Milner FASSA, Professor Louise Edwards FASSA, Professor Ian Hall

“Assessment of international dynamics in the Asian region matters more than ever, now that United States leadership is under challenge. The time is right for Australian analysts to debate the approaches we take in interpreting Asian developments.”

Ensuring rigorous dialogue between International Relations analysts and Asian studies specialists (experts with a language-based, history/culture-informed knowledge) will better prepare us to understand Asian-region dynamics. This workshop is designed to promote such dialogue, especially through a collaborative examination of six case-studies – each vitally important components of Australia’s current strategic environment.
