There is quite an active debate in Australia over its foreign and defense policies in Asia. It involves some of the best political/security analysts in Australia looking at the future shape
of Asia’s geopolitical order and how to safeguard Australia’s interests. Implicitly, and sometimes explicitly, the debate is about America’s staying power and the U.S.-Australian alliance. It is about China’s rise. And it is about the role the rest of the region plays in the emerging order. Please join us as we explore the perspective and decision points of one of America’s closest allies.
