Australia 2050 is the first comprehensive and contextual analysis of where Australia is going, the changes it will face, and the options open to it. It lays out for the Australian public and policymakers - indeed for a world audience - the framework for creating a national grand strategy which will help Australia and Australians survive and prosper in the competitive world of the first half of the 21st Century.
This unique study by Australia’s Centre for Strategic Analysis Future Directions International Looks at social issues as well as those of security, industry, the economy, and global stability and markets. It looks at such issues as the retention and development of values and language, as well as health care, agriculture and water, energy and governance.
Should Australia expand its geographic reach into the Antarctic, and develop a boarder view of its regional relations? Should Australia turn to thorium - or uranium- based nuclear power as part of its policies toward creating energy and desalinating water? How can Australians create the necessary infrastructure for the country’s north and north-west? What is Australia’s population policy? And what will be the number and composition of Australian peoples by 2050?
Australia 2050 was prepared as a national project to start the debate over the future of Australia. It is a future on which we are already embarked, and for which we need goals, a roadmap, and leadership.
Australians have never until now consciously and comprehensively outlined who they and their nation are, and where, in specific historical terms, they wish to find themselves into the indefinite future. This is a landmark study of national significance which seeks to provide Australia with a framework for responding to future challenges.
Topics covered are: Australia's Strategic Context, the Australian Economic Environment, Australia's population trend. Australia's National Security and Intelligence. Requirements in a transforming global environment, Australia's infrastructure and industrial capacity, strengthening Australia identity, Options for Australia, etc
