Event Details

Power, Politics and Institutions: from Asia to RMIT

Politics is about power. About who gets what, when and how. The way politics is structured - the rules of the political game - is a major determinant both of how the game is played and the outcomes. Institutions are the rules that structure political life - whether in a particular organisation (such as a university), a country or among countries.

Professor Andrew MacIntyre's research and teaching have been about understanding political institutions across the Asia-Pacific region. He will talk about some of the key insights that have come from an understanding of how institutions shape political life and how this plays out in countries ranging from Indonesia to Japan, China to Singapore, Vietnam to Malaysia and Australia to the United States. It will be an account featuring beaches, protests, parliaments, presidents, parties, soldiers and financial crises, as well as what this all means for RMIT.


Prior to joining RMIT, Professor Andrew MacIntyre was College Dean, Director of the Research School of Asia & the Pacific and founding Director of the Crawford School of Public Policy at the ANU. Earlier in his career, he was Professor at the Graduate School of International Relations & Pacific Studies at the University of California, San Diego.

Professor MacIntyre is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia. He publishes widely on Southeast Asian politics, international relations and higher education. He is the recipient of the Japanese Foreign Minister's Commendation for contributions to relations between Japan and Australia, and of the Presidential Friends of Indonesia award.

He has provided expert testimony to the Australian Parliament, the U.S. Congress, the Central Party School of the Chinese Communist Party and consulted to bodies such as the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, the ASEAN Secretariat, the U.S. Marine Corps, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
