Government and International Relations

Summary

The study of Government and International Relations is a dynamic area, responding to contemporary developments affecting the governance of societies, from terrorism to public sector reform. The relentless globalization of business and society means that no politics is purely local any more, since many international events have domestic ramifications. So Australians are affected by economic and political changes in Asia and Eastern Europe, just as they face similar policy challenges as those in Western Europe and North America. Our areas of expertise therefore cover many aspects of public policy and international relations: the state and economic structures; communist and post-communist systems; public management and policy analysis; political and social change; security and defense; human rights; welfare policy; international political economy; media; parties and elections; and democratic theory.
