Abstract

This project addresses the priority Defence policy topic of Accelerating Regional Military Modernization (and Asymmetric Advantages). It assesses the trends, attributes and drivers of accelerating military modernization in the Indo-Pacific, in order to understand and clearly delineate the challenges facing Australia. The report then proceeds to examine the roles of the key actors in this phenomenon, namely, China, the United States and India. Finally, the project puts forward and assesses potential Australian responses in the face of the region’s accelerating military modernization dynamic.
