Contest for the Indo-Pacific: Why China Won’t Map the Future

According to Rory Medcalf, the Indo-Pacific is both a geographical location and a strategic concept, and is now becoming increasingly central to global prosperity and security. Medcalf, an Australian academic and Head of the National Security College at ANU, believes that the Indo-Pacific will either become the arena for the largest international conflict since 1945 or the centre of world trade, depending on how China’s rise is managed. In this course, we will briefly consider Medcalf’s career and writings, and then examine the structure and main arguments of Medcalf’s book: Contest for the Indo-Pacific: Why China Won’t Map the Future.

This class will be delivered online via the online platform Zoom. Enrolling students need to ensure they have an email, a reliable internet connection, microphone/speakers and access to a tablet, smartphone or computer.
