On October 18-20, 2001, the 16th Annual Conference of the Council on U.S.-Korean Security Studies was held in Washington, DC. Created in 1985 by retired generals Richard Stilwell of the United States and Sun Yup Paik of the Republic of Korea, the Council's aim was to initiate a conference that would bring together top scholars and practitioners on the most important issues facing the two countries and their important bilateral alliance. Since then, the Council has successfully hosted an annual conference, alternating every other year between meetings in Seoul and Washington. Because of the unexpected attacks on the World Trade Center in New York just 1 month prior to the conference, the papers did not capture adequately an assessment of the actual and potential impact of the terrorist attack on U.S. foreign policy, its implications for the two Koreas, and its probable effects on China and Russia. There were suggestions that the attack would have major effects, but few details about what those would be, which was understandable with so little time having elapsed since the attack. On the other hand, several authors stressed that in important ways much had not changed: U.S. commitments had not been shifted or weakened; the U.S. ability to militarily uphold its commitments had not been affected; and the solidarity of the ROK-U.S. alliance again had been demonstrated through South Korea's strong support for the war on terrorism.

The arrival of China as a great regional and eventual global power is perhaps the most important security question facing Australia. The China security question, which encompasses questions about the nature of growing Chinese power, security architecture in the region, impact on Australias traditional alliances and increasing strategic competition with (especially) the United States, is set up to provide a significant and increasing challenge for Australian security thinking.

"Japan is one of Australias most important security partners. In the past, it was the trade and foreign policy aspects of the relationship that dominated. But over the last decade and a half the bilateral security relationship has steadily grown, and in the last few years it has accelerated to a new level. The signing of the Joint Declaration on Security Cooperation in March 2007 was a strategic landmark. Australia is the only country that Japan has such an agreement with apart from the United States. However, there is now a new Government in Australia and a new Prime Minister in Japan. We need to assess if the higher pace of security cooperation will be sustained or whether there will now be a tendency on each side to moderate the importance of the relationship. This paper addresses how the bilateral defence and security relationship has developed in recent years and where Japan now ranks in Australia's security priorities. The importance of the Declaration and the relevance of the Trilateral Strategic Dialogue with the United States are also addressed. The final section deals with some specific ideas to build on our current security cooperation in a more practical manner"--Publisher.

In May 1954 Vietnamese nationalists won one of the great military victories of the modern era when they defeated a French expeditionary force at the remote outpost of Dien Bien Phu. Vietnam's stunning triumph ended French colonialism in Indochina and set the scene for the United States disastrous intervention eight years later. Although the fall of Dien Bien Phu occurred more than half a century ago, the battle continues to present a compelling metaphor for contemporary Australian military strategy. Numerous factors contributed to the Viet Minh's triumph, but the most crucial was the local armys ability to conduct war amongst the people something that was entirely beyond both the comprehension and the competence of the French invaders. Since federation, Australian defence strategy has oscillated between two main forms, expeditionary campaigns and the defence of Australia. Expeditionary campaigns have been the dominant model even though, with the notable exception of the Second World War, their unintended consequences have diminished rather than enhanced national security.

"An historic shift is occurring in the global balance. This century will see the assertion of Asia as the locus of world power and the relative decline of Europe. The United States will remain the dominant power for a long time, perhaps until the middle of the century. But the world will progressively become a multipolar world with three Asian great powers (China, Japan and India) and one Eurasian power (Russia) competing with the United States. The central question of the next 20 years will be whether this new correlation of forces in Asia is a peaceful one or one of competition and conflict. Asias future will be determined by whether there is a cooperative and largely peaceful interaction between China, Japan, India, Russia and the United States or whether there will be a much more unstable struggle for influence and power in the years ahead. New pressures are emerging that could change all this: climate change; the struggle for scarce resources (particularly energy); ageing populations; and the fact that economic growth is inevitably leading to greater expenditure on arms and nuclear weapons. There are other serious problems looming in Asia: outstanding territorial claims, deep-seated historical antipathies combined with rising nationalisms, ethnic and religious clashes, and the fact that globalisation is not benefiting all countries (or all regions or people within a country) equally"--Publisher.
