China, US and Australia’s future in the new global order
12 November 2020. 6pm AEDT
Hosted by Crikey‘s political contributor Janine Perrett, it was a robust and revealing discussion with economist and author, Geoff Raby, and executive director of the Centre for Independent Studies, Tom Switzer.
They discussed Geoff’s new book – China’s Grand Strategy and Australia’s Future in the New Global Order, as well as the current state of leadership in the US and the future of Australia’s relationship with China.
Disruption has blown the old world apart. The rise of China, Trump’s America First policies, division within Europe and successful defiance by authoritarian states are affecting the shape of the emerging new order.
Australia will need to engage heightened levels of diplomacy to forge relations with countries of opposing principles. It will need to be agile in pursuing a realistic foreign policy agenda.
If you would like some further reading we have a wrap-up of the webinar, with insights into Australia’s future relationship with China by Charlie Lewis – Crikey Talks: On China, ‘Australia is very much on its own’.
Enjoy the highlights and replay.
