The tip of Southeast Asia is only 460 kilometres north of Darwin or 160 kilometres northwest of the Torres Strait Islands. Despite the region's increasing economic wealth, all but one of the eleven Southeast Asian countries struggle with varying degrees of instability and/or challenges for economic development. Through a synopsis of the broad array of security challenges, trade opportunities and shifting power dynamics in the region, this seminar assesses why and how Australia needs to continue to strengthen its engagement with Southeast Asia.

Dr Christopher Roberts is a Senior Lecturer at the National Security College within The Australian National University. He is also a Visiting Fellow with UNSW at the Australian Defence Force Academy and has previously held positions at the University of Canberra and S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore. Christopher specialises in Southeast Asian security, politics and institutional developments. Aside from two sole authored books -- 'ASEAN Regionalism' (Routledge) and 'ASEAN's Myanmar Crisis' (ISEAS) -- he has completed more than thirty other journal articles, book chapters, conference papers, commentaries and reports on issues relevant to the politics and security of the Asia-Pacific.
