英文简介 The course will explore how Australian leaders respond to the challenges caused by Australia’s integration into the global political economy.  In this regard, the course will explore a range of issues, which respective leaders confronted, such as, multiculturalism, international education, climate change, trade and investment flows, and Australia’s perceptions and place in Asia. The course aims to make students aware of the relationship between leadership and decision making, especially the dilemma leaders face with China as Australia’s largest trading partner, yet they regard the US alliance as immutable.  Students will develop an understanding of Australian political leadership within an international studies framework, and gain the skills to analyse Australian leaders.
