Discourses and practices of legitimization in the “Souths”: Australia in the Oceanian space – Fabrice Argounès

“This article considers that contemporary discourses build an identity and a role in the geographical space of Australian power, medium and regional power in an Asian and peaceful environment. This process of legitimization involves a (re) writing of the surrounding space, which becomes a mythological territory, in order to construct and reconstruct international identity and spatiality (Katzenstein, 2005). “.
