This unit introduces students to the evolution of Australia’s engagement with the Asia–Pacific region. Since Federation, Australia has struggled to define its relationship with its northern neighbours. Some governments have called for Australia to distance itself from the region, while others have sought to strengthen ties. In any case, the region has been essential to Australia’s national interests. This unit shows how a growing range of issues – from security and regionalism, to trade and development, and to human rights and asylum seekers – are binding Australia and the region more closely, despite any misgivings on the part of some Australians. It also considers Australia’s relations with key players in three sub-regions: Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia, and South Asia. The unit will introduce students to how policymakers design foreign policy, the issues they grapple with, and the key partners with whom they engage when attempting to implement it.
