Proposal Rationale
                                        A recent comprehensive study of the teaching of
                                        Pacific Studies at Australian universities reports
                                        that both student enrolments and the overall
                                        number of courses offered have been in
                                        significant decline since the 1980s (Rose et al.
                                        2009).[1] This stands in stark contrast to the
                                        intensification of official Australian engagement
                                        with the region, particularly the Western Pacific,
                                        which has been occurring over the past decade or
                                        so. There is a profound disjuncture between
                                        Australia’s costly ‘new interventionism’ in the
                                        region - epitomised by the Regional Assistance
                                        Mission to Solomon Islands - on the one hand,
                                        and the progressive degradation of the teaching of
                                        Pacific Studies at Australian universities on the
                                        other.

                                        Another important trend has been the steady
                                        growth in Australia’s vibrant Pacific Islander

University Education Committee – Agenda - Meeting No.4/2011 of 9 September 2011
                                                                                  1342/2011

                                        communities which has created a vital
                                        constituency for the teaching of Pacific Studies at
                                        the tertiary level. At the same that the Australian
                                        community’s need for deep knowledge and
                                        understanding of the Pacific - both the Pacific
                                        ‘over there’ and the Pacific ‘over here’ - has been
                                        growing, the teaching of Pacific Studies in
                                        Australian universities, and the capacity to do so,
                                        has been eroding. The AAAPS report’s highest
                                        priority recommendation is that “Australian
                                        universities develop undergraduate units/subjects
                                        that specifically examine Australia’s role in the
                                        Pacific Islands region”.

                                        Since 2008 the ANU, which has long been
                                        Australia’s flagship institution for Pacific
                                        research and post-graduate training, has been
                                        teaching Australia’s only Pacific Studies major.
                                        The adoption of the major accorded with the then
                                        Vice-Chancellor’s passion to ensure that teaching
                                        was offered in all areas where the ANU excelled
                                        in research. It was decided that the Pacific Studies
                                        major would be housed within the Bachelor of
                                        Asia Studies - renamed as the Bachelor of Asia-
                                        Pacific Studies - a degree which was originally
                                        founded on the teaching of major Asian
                                        languages in conjunction with ‘contextual
                                        majors’.

                                        The experience of teaching the Pacific Studies
                                        major over the past four years points to a pressing
                                        need to reconsider these institutional
                                        arrangements. There is consensus amongst staff
                                        involved in teaching the Pacific Studies that:

                                        o   the language major requirement of the
                                        Bachelor of Asia-Pacific Studies (BAPS) has
                                        been an impediment both in terms of growing the
                                        program and providing students with the
                                        opportunity to develop a relevant disciplinary
                                        grounding if they so chose; and

                                        o the current arrangements subordinate and
                                        marginalise Pacific Studies under the Asia-Pacific
                                        rubric, reproducing the intellectual subordination
                                        that occurs in wider discourses of 'Asia-Pacific'.

                                        A standalone Bachelor of Pacific Studies
                                        (BPASI) would alleviate these constraints while
                                        simultaneously establishing Australia’s first
                                        undergraduate degree in Pacific Studies thereby
University Education Committee – Agenda - Meeting No.4/2011 of 9 September 2011
                                                                                  1342/2011

                                        reinforcing and complementing the ANU’s
                                        position as Australia’s leading tertiary institution
                                        for research and policy advice on the Pacific.

                                        The BPASI will assist in rectifying Australia’s
                                        growing deficit in Pacific knowledge and
                                        expertise by providing undergraduate training in
                                        Pacific Studies for potential recruits to the public,
                                        private and NGO sectors; mid-career training for
                                        professionals employed in Pacific-related roles;
                                        and a focal point for maintaining a core group of
                                        Pacific specialists on staff at ANU.

                                        A further compelling need for a BPASI relates to
                                        ANU’s equity commitments to minority
                                        communities. The ANU Strategic Plan commits
                                        the University to enhancing equity and access to
                                        students from Pacific Islander communities in
                                        Australia. This is being effected through the
                                        ANU’s Pasifika Australia Outreach Program the
                                        efforts of which would be greatly strengthened by
                                        the establishment of a BPASI.

                                        The brief has also been sent to the following
                                        external stakeholders: The Hon Richard Marles
                                        MP, Parliamentary Secretary for Pacific Island
                                        Affairs; The Department of Foreign Affairs and
                                        Trade; AusAID; The Australian Federal Police;
                                        The Australian Council for International
                                        Development (ACFID); and Canberra-based
                                        diplomats representing Pacific Island Countries.

                                        Informal discussions have been conducted with
                                        past and present Pacific Studies students at ANU

Intended Market and Rationale
for Estimated Enrolment                 The market for this degree is ANU undergraduate
Numbers                                 students who are interested in combining a
                                        Pacific Studies major with the study of a relevant
                                        discipline and/or language. Discussions with past
                                        and present undergraduate students indicates that
                                        more students would be taking Pacific Studies if
                                        there was greater flexibility around the majors
                                        that can be combined the Pacific Studies major.

                                        In addition to students enrolling in the BPASI, it
                                        is anticipated that students will take the Pacific
                                        Studies major or minor as part of the Bachelor of
                                        Interdisciplinary Studies (Sustainability) and that
                                        significant numbers of CASS and Fenner School
                                        students will continue to take individual PASI
                                        courses as part of their degrees

Quality Assurance
Arrangements                            SELT evaluation for individual courses. Quality
                                        Assurance will also be provided via the ANU
                                        Pacific Studies Board and the Pacific Institute.

                                        The program will be reviewed after 3 years, and
                                        then every 5-7 years, in accordance with ANU
                                        policy.

Program Introductory
Description                             The Bachelor of Pacific Studies combines an
                                        interdisciplinary Pacific Studies major with the
                                        in-depth study of disciplines and languages
                                        relevant to the understanding of complex issues in
                                        contemporary Oceania. Students have the choice
                                        of combining their Pacific Studies major with
                                        approved disciplinary majors and minors,
                                        approved language majors and minors, or a
                                        combination of language and disciplinary minors.

University Education Committee – Agenda - Meeting No.4/2011 of 9 September 2011
                                                                                  1342/2011


                                        The Pacific Studies major itself employs an
                                        interdisciplinary framework to explore important
                                        historical and contemporary issues in Oceania,
                                        and to critically examine the ways in which
                                        knowledge about the region, and the region itself,
                                        have been framed, constructed and represented. It
                                        provides students with a deep understanding of
                                        the cultural, social, geographic and political
                                        diversity of Oceania, and the richness of
                                        perspectives on it, with a particular emphasis on
                                        indigenous epistemologies and voices. Students
                                        emerge with a strong sense of a very large and
                                        diverse, yet deeply connected region.

                                        The degree may be augmented by one year study
                                        abroad in the Graduate Diploma in Asia-Pacific
                                        Studies Program.

Proposal Rationale
                                        This proposal has grown out of the significant
                                        collaboration between the ANU and the
                                        University of Copenhagen (KU) for the IARU
                                        Demonstration Project on Sustainable Cities. In
                                        particular the proposal is based on substantial
                                        joint research work by staff from the ANU
                                        Fenner School of Environment and Society and
                                        KU LIFE on the food flows and ecosystem
                                        services, and landscape and ecosystem functions
                                        nodes of the IARU Demonstration Project. This
                                        research collaboration will form the core of the
                                        proposed Masters program.

                                        Both universities have considerable expertise
                                        across a wide range of fields essential to
                                        addressing the issues of global food security, the
                                        growth of urban populations and their
                                        metabolism, and the resultant impact on

                                                                                  1342/2011

                                        agricultural production globally. These fields of
                                        expertise include food security; food and
                                        agricultural policy; globalisation, industrial
                                        ecology, urban metabolism and sustainable urban
                                        development; agroecology; agricultural science;
                                        climate change impacts and vulnerability;
                                        ecosystem services including water resources,
                                        biodiversity, climate and soil resources; natural
                                        resource management; human health and urban
                                        and rural systems; non-fossil fuel energy
                                        technologies and policies; integrated approaches
                                        to risk and vulnerability assessment; international
                                        and domestic environmental policy; resource and
                                        environmental economics; legal dimensions of
                                        global security; and politics, policy and
                                        governance perspectives on environment,
                                        agriculture and urbanisation.

                                        We propose that the ANU and KU bring relevant
                                        courses together in a new Master of Global Food
                                        Security (Research) degree from 2012. This
                                        degree will be an international cross-institutional,
                                        double Master degree, with research dissertations
                                        and core and elective courses from a range of
                                        areas reflecting the breadth of expertise at both
                                        Universities. The degree program is modelled on
                                        a two year extended version of the existing ANU
                                        Master (Research) programs offered in the Fenner
                                        School and other areas, and maps onto the
                                        standard two-year European Masters degree
                                        format.

                                        Participating students will enrol in the degree at
                                        their home university and be subject to the rules
                                        and fee conditions of that university for the
                                        duration of the degree program. Students will be
                                        required to take a proportion of the program at the
                                        partner university (see Program Structure and
                                        Requirements, below). For students enrolling at
                                        the ANU the program will be full fee paying,

                                        is enrolled.

                                        The program requires two years of full-time study
                                        (ANU: 96 units), with all students completing a
                                        minimum of six months or one semester in each
                                        of the participating universities. Each student
                                        will be required to complete a 24 unit Masters
                                        Dissertation on a topic relevant to the intent of the

                                        Estimated enrolment numbers: 5

                                        We anticipate relatively small enrolments due to
                                        the cost and duration of the program, and the
                                        requirement to spend at least 6 months in
                                        Denmark/Europe (the features that make it

                                        Nevertheless we believe that the program will

Description                             The Master of Global Food Security (Research) is
                                        a flexible interdisciplinary coursework and
                                        research degree program that allows students to
                                        develop a program of advanced learning suited to
                                        their individual interests and skills in global
                                        urban, rural, agricultural and policy aspects of
                                        food security. The flexibility of course
                                        requirements for both the core and specialisation
                                        component of the degree allows programs to be
                                        structured to meet individual needs. Students will
                                        spend a minimum of six months or one semester
                                        in each of the Australian National University
                                        (ANU) and the University of Copenhagen (KU).

                                        The program comprises 18 units of courses in a
                                        suite of core topic areas including 6 units of an
                                        ANU/KU jointly taught compulsory core course;
                                        30 units of courses focused on an individual
                                        specialisation of the student's choice (one of these
                                        courses may be a core course), related to the topic
                                        of the research project; up to a further 24 units of
                                        electives selected in consultation with the course
                                        convener; and either 24 or 48 units of research as
                                        a dissertation on a topic that bridges the two
                                        regions (Australia and Denmark/EU).

Proposal Rationale
                                        The development of a distinctive international
                                        law dealing with security has been ongoing since
                                        the creation of the United Nations in 1945 and
                                        with it the United Nations Security Council. That
                                        law has been constantly developing through
                                        multiple approaches within distinctive areas of
                                        international law in recent decades, such as
                                        international humanitarian law, the use of force,
                                        and international criminal law. That body of law
                                        has now developed such distinctive features that
                                        the coherent study of International Security Law
                                        is now possible and a dedicated series of
                                        programs in the field is justified.

                                        This program builds upon specialist staff
                                        expertise in the ANU College of Law in the field
                                        of international security law, and also seeks to
                                        complement other courses and programs offered
                                        throughout the ANU in the security field (ie.

                                                                                  1342/2011

                                        Department of International Relations, CAP).
                                        They also complement the existing programs
                                        offered by the CoL in International Law.

                                        A key aspect of this program will be to provide
                                        specialist education and training in the area of
                                        international security law to the Australian Public
                                        Service, where there has been an enormous
                                        expansion in national and international security
                                        agencies over the past decade. Key agencies that
                                        will have an interest in these programs are the
                                        Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet,
                                        Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade,
                                        Attorney General’s Department, and the
                                        Australian Federal Police.

Relevant ANU Internal and
External Consultation                   Development of this program has been subject to
                                        consultation within the ANU College of Law,
                                        including the CoL Executive, CoL LLM
                                        Committee, and the CoL Education Committee. It
                                        has also been considered by the ANU Education
                                        Committee.

                                        External consultation has been undertaken with
                                        key stakeholders in the delivery of this program,
                                        including the Attorney-General’s
                                        Department, and Department of Defence.

Intended Market and Rationale
for Estimated Enrolment                 International Security as a discipline has
Numbers                                 undergone a significant transformation following
                                        the end of the Cold War and the 2001 terrorist
                                        attacks on the United States. In parallel with this
                                        development of the discipline has been the
                                        growth of a distinctive body of international law
                                        dealing with international security. These
                                        developments were reflected in the ANU CoL in
                                        2008 when a new LLM course titled
                                        ‘International Security Law’ was
                                        introduced. That course has been well received by
                                        students with strong graduate enrolments in both
                                        2008 and 2010.

                                        The CoL already offers one of the most well
                                        regarded Masters programs in International Law
                                        in Australia, which since 2006 has been
                                        supplemented by a Masters of Military Law
                                        offered to lawyers in the Australian Defence
                                        Force. Together these two programs have
                                        highlighted to the student market the reputation

                                                       and strength of the ANU CoL in the graduate
                                                       teaching of international law, military law, and
                                                       international security law. There have been
                                                       significant increases in enrolments in related
                                                       courses in International Criminal Law,
                                                       International Humanitarian Law, and
                                                       International Law and the Use of Armed Force.

                                                       The Master of International Security Law seeks to
                                                       build upon these strengths and developments by
                                                       packaging together a number of existing courses
                                                       with new courses so as to offer a coherent
                                                       program in International Security Law at the
                                                       graduate level. On the basis of existing
                                                       enrolments in related courses and programs, it is
                                                       anticipated that enrolments would commence at
                                                       20-30 in years 1 and 2 and grow beyond that to
                                                       50-60 students (both full and part time), As there
                                                       is no equivalent program elsewhere in the world
                                                       the ANU has the potential to become the market
                                                       leader in this area.

               Quality Assurance
               Arrangements                            All courses offered in this program will be
                                                       subject to standard Quality Assurance
                                                       Arrangements including the administration of
                                                       SELT. It would also be proposed that the program
                                                       be subject to international benchmarking in 2017
                                                       following the 5th year of its delivery.

Proposal Rationale
                                        The development of a distinctive international
                                        law dealing with security has been ongoing since
                                        the creation of the United Nations in 1945 and
                                        with it the United Nations Security Council. That
                                        law has been constantly developing through
                                        multiple approaches within distinctive areas of
                                        international law in recent decades, such as
                                        international humanitarian law, the use of force,
                                        and international criminal law. That body of law
                                        has now developed such distinctive features that
                                        the coherent study of International Security Law
                                        is now possible and a dedicated series of
                                        programs in the field is justified.

                                        This program builds upon specialist staff
                                        expertise in the ANU College of Law in the field
                                        of international security law, and also seek to
                                        complement other courses and programs offered
University Education Committee – Agenda - Meeting No.4/2011 of 9 September 2011
                                                                                  1342/2011

                                        throughout the ANU in the security field (ie.
                                        Department of International Relations, CAP).
                                        They also complement the existing programs
                                        offered by the CoL in International Law.

                                        A key aspect of this program will be to provide
                                        specialist education and training in the area of
                                        international security law to the Australian Public
                                        Service, where there has been an enormous
                                        expansion in national and international security
                                        agencies over the past decade. Key agencies that
                                        will have an interest in these programs are the
                                        Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet,
                                        Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade,
                                        Attorney General’s Department, and the
                                        Australian Federal Police.

Relevant ANU Internal and
External Consultation                   Development of this program has been subject to
                                        consultation within the ANU College of Law,
                                        including the CoL Executive, CoL LLM
                                        Committee, and the CoL Education Committee. It
                                        has also been considered by the ANU Education
                                        Committee.

                                        External consultation has been undertaken with
                                        key stakeholders in the delivery of this program,
                                        including the Attorney-General’s
                                        Department, and Department of Defence.

Intended Market and Rationale
for Estimated Enrolment                 International Security as a discipline has
Numbers                                 undergone a significant transformation following
                                        the end of the Cold War and the 2001 terrorist
                                        attacks on the United States. In parallel with this
                                        development of the discipline has been the
                                        growth of a distinctive body of international law
                                        dealing with international security. These
                                        developments were reflected in the ANU CoL in
                                        2008 when a new LLM course titled
                                        ‘International Security Law’ was
                                        introduced. That course has been well received by
                                        students with strong graduate enrolments in both
                                        2008 and 2010.

                                        The CoL already offers one of the most well
                                        regarded graduate programs in International Law
                                        in Australia, which since 2006 has been
                                        supplemented by a Masters of Military Law
                                        offered to lawyers in the Australian Defence
                                        Force. Together these two programs have

                                                       highlighted to the student market the reputation
                                                       and strength of the ANU CoL in the graduate
                                                       teaching of international law, military law, and
                                                       international security law. There have been
                                                       significant increases in enrolments in related
                                                       courses in International Criminal Law,
                                                       International Humanitarian Law, and
                                                       International Law and the Use of Armed Force.

                                                       The Graduate Diploma in International Security
                                                       Law seeks to build upon these strengths and
                                                       developments by packaging together a number of
                                                       existing courses with new courses so as to offer a
                                                       coherent program in International Security Law at
                                                       the graduate level. On the basis of existing
                                                       enrolments in related courses and programs, it is
                                                       anticipated that enrolments would commence at
                                                       20-30 in years 1 and 2 and grow beyond that to
                                                       50-60 students (both full and part time), As there
                                                       is no equivalent program elsewhere in the world
                                                       the ANU has the potential to become the market
                                                       leader in this area.
