Topic: "Re-ordering foreign policy. Changing concepts of collective security and imperial defence in Australia, New Zealand and Canada in the 1960s and 1970s"
Abstract: This subproject concerns debates on the reorganisation of foreign policy in former white settler colonies during the 1960's and 1970's, and is derived from government agencies, private papers and newspaper article sources. The focus of this project are the discussions surrounding the British military withdrawal ‘East of Suez’ from Southeast Asia. With analysis of these discussions, it examines the transformation of political, diplomatic and strategic ties between Great Britain and Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The subproject asks to what extent all three countries felt threatened or affected by the British decision, and how they incorporated the subsequent changes into a global foreign policy framework. It examines how policy-makers like public servants, diplomats and politicians described the geopolitical space in which their young nation was situated, and how they developed a distinctive national identity following the withdrawal, and with the British turning towards Europe. The discussions surrounding the British retreat from Southeast Asia are understood as a significant contribution to nation-building processes at the end of the 1960's, which allowed all three countries a more self-reliant outlook in regard to their region and positioning in the world.
