Knowledge of Australian foreign relations is a key component of both the formal study of international relations, and of Australian politics and history. Understanding Australia's place in the world contributes to a student’s sense of global citizenship. This course is intended to serve as a capstone course for international relations students in their final year.
This course provides a detailed analysis of Australian foreign policy. It seeks to acquaint students with Australia's historic and contemporary relations on a global basis, including a specific emphasis on the Asia-Pacific region, and to identify factors that have contributed to the development of these relations. The course also discusses the international role of Australia in the present era.
