Disruptive Asia Debate Series | Values vs Interests (Sydney)VIEW EVENT DETAILS
Australia and China in the Pacific: Collaborators or Competitors?
How do we balance traditional views on security and prosperity with moral values while still pursuing our national interests?
Following on from the success of Asia Society Australia's flagship publication, Disruptive Asia, we are pleased to launch the Disruptive Asia Debate Series. In 2019 these public events will bring the best of Disruptive Asia to Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra.
This year we focus on Australia-China ‘bounded engagement’. The debate series pairs our authors and leading China thinkers to discuss how "values vs interests" play out across the various dimensions of the Australia-China relationship.
Date: Tuesday 3 September 2019
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Venue: Sydney CBD 2000
This event is open to all members of the public. Registration essential. If you're unsure, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
More details to be announced.
Since the launch in 2017, Disruptive Asia has become widely recognised across policy, business and education circles for its contribution to understanding the major issues facing Australia-Asia relations. The publication offers original analysis, nuanced perspectives and practical policy recommendations.
In 2020 the debate series will be stepped-up to quarterly program across the major state capitals.
Disruptive Asia is a thought-leadership project by Asia Society Australia launched in 2017. It presents – through long-form essays – new perspectives and policy recommendations on how Asia’s rise is impacting Australia’s foreign policy, economy and society and how Australia should respond. Disruptive Asia deliberately looks at both external aspects of Australia’s relationship with Asia (foreign policy, business connectivity, international education) and their domestic implications and manifestations (community relations, leadership diversity, education settings and capabilities).
