Indo-Pacific Strategic Papers

The Indo-Pacific Strategic Papers were published between 2014 and 2017 by the Centre for Defence Research on behalf of the Centre for Defence and Strategic Studies (CDSS). In 2019, as part of the restructuring of the Australian Defence College, the CDSS was incorporated into the Australian War College.

The range of papers published reflected the coursework and research submitted by Australian and international students of the Defence and Strategic Studies Course through this period. The papers were chosen for publication based on their scholarly attributes and strategic relevance. They cover topics related to Australia’s area of primary and enduring strategic interest – the Indo‐Pacific region – and present analyses and assessments that concern Australia’s policy interests.
