Key Country Briefing
This popular series focuses on an integrated analysis of strategic, economic, political and societal trends in a number of countries which engage vital Australian interests. It is an ideal way to gain or refresh insights into key countries in the Indo-Pacific and globally.
Looking at challenges and opportunities over the next three to five years, the courses examine the countries’ developing characteristics, including the state of the economy, political and social outlooks, defence priorities and aspirations, technical innovation, internal security challenges, strategic objectives, and implications for Australian interests.
You will take a ‘deep dive’ through a series of interactive presentations, syndicate and hypothetical sessions.
Course scope and content
This course will focus on modern Indonesia. The issues to be addressed will include the following:
• Indonesia’s developing characteristics, including its economic growth, defence priorities and aspirations, technical innovation and regional and global influence
• Indonesia’s challenges including its economic growth model and political and social outlook
• the implications of social and economic change for Indonesia’s governance structures
• Indonesia’s international objectives and strategies, and
• the implications for Australian public policy priorities.
The course will be delivered as an intensive and interactive two day course. Themes will be developed through presentations and facilitated discussion. Presenters will have deep expertise and practical experience in relation to the dynamics of change in Indonesia and the implications for Australian policy. The course will identify, through interactive discussion, the relevant and important issues facing the participants’ departments and agencies in relation to the broad context of the evolving Australia-Indonesia relationship.
Who should attend the course?
This course is designed for officers from all departments and agencies who would benefit from a deeper understanding of Indonesia, its implications for Australian public policy and Australian national security interests in particular. APS5 – SES Band 2 policy officers and equivalents in national security agencies will benefit from this course.
