What's at Stake in the Indo-Asia-Pacific: Competing Strategic Imaginaries
As part of the Center's Global Security Lecture Series, join us in welcoming Dr. Evelyn Goh from Australian National University for a virtual lecture discussing the geopolitics of the Indo-Asia-Pacific. In her lecture, Goh will present findings from her research on the region, including an analysis of the region's competing strategic imaginaries, which she argues define the conflict in the region. The region itself contains several flash points that could trigger war among different nuclear-armed states. Her research and presentation explore the three main strategic imaginaries of the region: the ‘Asia-Pacific’ familiar to American audiences; a revived 'Greater Asia' made possible by China's resurgence and encapsulated by its Belt and Road Initiative; and the ‘Indo-Pacific’ vision mooted by Australian and Japanese strategists.
Goh is the Shedden Professor of Strategic Policy Studies at the Australian National University, where she is also the Director of Research at the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre. Professor Goh is an Asian security expert who studies China, the U.S., Northeast Asia, and Southeast Asia. She is also a leading international authority on theorizing the international relations of the Asia-Pacific.
