AUKUS in Context: Security and Strategy Implications for the Indo-Pacific and Globally


The course is focused on both furthering participant understanding of the AUKUS trilateral security partnership between Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom, launched in September 2021, and its potential impact on regional and global security. It will examine key aspects of the partnership including the joint development of nuclear submarines and other advanced technologies, providing a basic technical introduction for non-specialists, while also examining some of the challenges that are likely to be encountered in their development. It will also explore the strategic value of the pact for each of the member countries and how AUKUS fits into the regional security architecture in the Indo-Pacific and globally.
