STGP 2021: Tracking the Evolution of the Indonesia-China Relationship in a Post-Covid-19 Context

STGP 2021: Tracking the Evolution of the Indonesia-China Relationship in a Post-Covid-19 Context

The project, titled ‘Tracking the evolution of the Indonesia-China relationship in a post Covid-19 context’ aims to explore the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Indonesia-China relations by looking at the period 2016-2021 and measuring the strength of the relationship across six core domains: political relations, economic relations, cultural relations, technological and biomedical cooperation and military cooperation.

This research will serve as an important reference point for strategic decision makers seeking to determine the current and likely future trajectory of the two largest nations of geostrategic influence in the South China Sea in the event of regional conflict.

This project is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Defence under the Strategic Policy Grants Program.
