PICTURE INTERPRETATION IN CONTEXT OF A.P.I AND POWER: AUSTRALIA, CHINA, US INTERACTION IN INDO-PACIFIC REGION

Ari Harmoko

Abstract


In recent times, the Indo-Pacific region is one of the most dynamic with newly rising and developing powers. Rivalry within the region, which has stemmed from border issues to cultural issues within nations, sets the region to be one of the most volatile ones. Its dynamics along with its abundance of resources has caught the attention of major powers to gain influence in the region, including the People’s Republic of China, Australia, and The United States. In depicting tense political situations, satirical cartoons are one of the most popular media to be used in publications. This paper conducts a semiotic analysis towards one of these cartoons which can be interpreted to depict the recent developments regarding major power rivalry within the region. Relating to the concept of balance of power, the analysis will be used to further explain the actions and history of interactions between these powers in the region along with their future motivations.
