The Obama Administration_s Pivot to Asia and the rise of Chinese power in the region greatly influences the U.S.-Australian alliance. To meet the regional security challenges, the United States will station Marine Corps forces in the North Territory; however, the Australian domestic debate is dominated by a narrative of defense _self-reliance._ The sometimes contradictory relationship and the shifts in the region provide the United States an opportunity to reengage the Australian domestic debate. The project will initiate a dialogue regarding Australia_s policy on international non-proliferation policy and analyze the view of domestic groups in Australia towards the U.S. Pivot to Asia. It will also identify emerging problems and opportunities in the areas of bilateral defense relations, U.S. basing, and the coordination of efforts to stem the growth of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Enhanced Conventional Weapons (CBRNE) proliferation in the region.
