Abbott was a Member of Parliament for 25 years, representing Warringah from 1994 to 2019.

He earned degrees in economics and law from Sydney University and a Master of Arts in politics and philosophy from Oxford which he attended as a Rhodes Scholar.

Description

The strategic balance in the Indo-Pacific is changing, but the fundamentals of national security are not. Countries and systems have rivals. Weakness will be exploited. President Trump's instincts are good but strike many in the region as unorthodox. So, how does America continue to lead and how does the West continue to win while keeping the moral quality that's made it great? Please join us to hear former Australian Prime Minister and Liberal Party leader Tony Abbott address this question and what the answer means for Australia, the Indo-Pacific, and the values the U.S. and Australia share.
