The study examined the emergence of the AUKUS Pact as a regional bloc and its implications in the Asia Continent and also how the entire world received the news of the establishment of the Pact. The research design used for the paper was the diary research method involving creditable media reports and internet analysis reports. The result showed that there are persistent threats of dominance within the Indo-Pacific region that led to the emergence of the AUKUS Pact. Based on the findings, it was recommended that the period of the establishment of the AUKUS Pact was not right due to the tense tension in the region. However, the establishment of the AUKUS Pact intensified the existing tension rather than reducing it. The Pact was not adequately welcome by other nations mostly China, France, Indonesia, and Malaysia that voiced their concerns against the Pact. Hence, this will undermine the existing alliance such as ASEAN in which the rivalries nations are members. Therefore, the power game politics and the growing rivalries among the big world powers and the middle powers is over dominance in the Indo-Pacific region is all about the balance of power.

The editor chooses which article to publish. When reaching a choice, the editor can consult with other editors or reviewers.

Peer Reviewers

Peer review provides an assessment of the articles submitted by the editor. The reviewer's assessment results assist the editor in editing the assessment and can also help the author improve the article through the editorial communication with the author. Any selected reviewer who believes they lack the skills necessary to evaluate a manuscript or realizes that doing so quickly is impossible should notify the editor and withdraw from the review process. The review must be carried out impartially. It would be inappropriate to criticize the author personally. Referees must clearly state their position and provide evidence to support them. Any manuscript sent to you for review should be treated with confidentiality. They cannot be discussed or shown to anyone without the editor's permission. Reviewers must indicate related published work that the author still needs to cite. Suitable quotations must support any claim that specific observations, deductions, or arguments have been recorded.
