Geopolitics, Business and Government Research Cluster
There are a range of interesting and intricate relationship patterns that exist between business and government. Geopolitics often plays an important albeit uncanny role in moulding such relationships. This cluster aims to deliberate on these important issues primarily from a management perspective. In doing so, the cluster endeavours to:
- look at the historical development of the relationship across geopolitics, government and business enterprises;
- investigate the current state of the relationship and its impact on governments, MNCs and the wider community;
- enquire the significance of such relationships on Australian governments, society and business enterprises, and compare them with countries within the Asia Pacific, North America and Europe;
- build productive relationships with schools, centres and research groups within and beyond RMIT to foster cross-disciplinary and cross-national research on geopolitics, business and government; and
- establish RMIT as the home of excellence in pursing research on this globally important tension area.
Cluster activities include organising workshops and seminars, conducting and encouraging research activities, and engaging in collaborative undertakings including research and exchange of ideas with other groups and institutions locally and internationally.
