Country and Executive Reports - Strategic Diplomacy for 21st Century Defence and Statecraft.

How best should Australia's key strategic partners in Asia and Europe meet their future defence and security needs?

 

Developing a structured and systematic way of imagining the future is more critical than ever in today’s strategic and policy environment that is undergoing transformational change. The primary objective of this research project, funded by the Australian Government Department of Defence, is to support the development of strategic literacy for the complex challenges faced by Australia and its partners and allies.

In collaboration with an international research team, we investigated four significant cases of Asian and European strategic partners – Japan, Singapore, Germany, and the UK – which share many contemporary security challenges.

The project has generated new and up-to-date insights about how those countries mobilise power and exercise statecraft within a world that gives them less control over the future they want to inhabit.
