The unit introduces students to the study of Australian foreign policy. First, there is an investigation of foreign policy decision-making and the domestic and international settings. This is followed by an examination of Australian identities and alignments in foreign policy: as a 'middle power', 'ANZUS ally', and as 'part of the region'. Contemporary foreign policy issues such as security, economic relations, environment and human rights are explored through these frameworks.
