The Strategic and Defence Studies Centre (SDSC) is proud to be acknowledged among the earliest generation of post-World War II research institutions dedicated to the analysis of armed force in its political context. In coming years, the Centre seeks to build upon our achievements, and to play a leading role in shaping international strategic studies, policies and debates. Within the next decade, SDSC aims to position itself as the leading university-based institution for research, education, and outreach in strategic and defence issues in the Asia-Pacific region.
In a period of major change in the global and regional strategic order, we will invest in the development of our research and teaching programs in order to play a leading role in defining Strategic Studies for our age. Our goal is to shape the areas of scholarship and policy-making which inform the leadership of the Asia-Pacific, and equip strategic planners and analysts to be bold and innovative in addressing the challenges of the future.
