Fresh perspectives on key issues affecting Australia and its neighbourhood
First launched in 2018, the annual State of the Neighbourhood report places emphasis on Australia’s near neighbourhood of South East Asia and the South Pacific and seeks to inform government policy makers and industry leaders of the key thematic areas of Griffith Asia Institute’s research: politics, economics, security, governance, development and diplomacy in the Asia Pacific.
The report provides an opportunity to recast some of Australia’s key foreign, economic and development issues from a distinctively Queensland perspective.
Our objective in publishing this collection is to share our research insights and encourage informed community debate on Australia’s engagement in the Asia Pacific.
