About Us

The Strategic and Defence Studies Centre (SDSC) is Australia’s largest body of scholars dedicated to research and education relating to the use of armed force in its political context. Within the broad field of Strategic Studies, SDSC’s activities are concentrated within three multi-disciplinary clusters: Australian defence and strategic policy; military studies; and Asia-Pacific security. SDSC conducts several major educational programs at undergraduate and graduate level, and includes a vibrant community of PhD scholars.

The Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs forms part of the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific and is dedicated to advancing analysis and understanding of the international, political, societal, and strategic affairs of Asia and the Pacific. The School is constituted by four departments: the Department of International Relations; the Department of Pacific Affairs; the Department of Political and Social Change; and the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre.

The ANU College of Asia and the Pacific (CAP) leads intellectual engagement with the Asia-Pacific region through research, teaching and contributions to public debate, and seeks to set the international standard for scholarship concerning the region.
