Xi’s China: a closer look NEW

National Security College | Professional course


This intermediate-advanced level course is tailored for participants with a solid academic or professional understanding of China, who seek deeper perspectives on China’s strategic rise and the complex challenges this poses in the Indo-Pacific.

Expert speakers will discuss the impact of Xi Jinping’s style of governance on China’s political, security and economic settings, and examine how China’s internal dynamics impact upon global and regional power dynamics. With a focus on Taiwan and Australia’s near region, we look at the challenges these developments present for Western policymakers.

Course numbers are limited to enable interactive discussion and participants are expected to have a current professional focus on China issues.

This program will be offered twice in 2023.

No security clearance required.
