Disruptive Asia Debate | Values vs Interests (Sydney)VIEW EVENT DETAILS
Australia and China in the Pacific: Collaborators or Competitors?
When it comes to China, how do we balance our values vs our interests?
This year Disruptive Asia focuses on China. We asked our authors, what should Australia's ‘bounded engagement’ with China look like?
Now we broaden the discussion with a public debate series across Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne unpacking the boundaries and parameters of our relationship with China.
In Sydney on 3 September we ask, are Australia and China collaborators or competitors in the Pacific? We will be joined by authors Dr Bates Gill, Professor of Asia-Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University and Dermot O’Gorman, CEO of WWF Australia, along with China and Pacific specialists Glenda Korporaal, China Correspondent for The Australian, Dr Merriden Varrall, Director of Geopolitics and Tax at KPMG Australia & Nonresident Fellow at the Lowy Institute and Shiu Raj Singh, Senior Private Sector Development Officer, Pacific Liaison and Coordination Office at the Asian Development Bank.

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).
