[WEBCAST] A new Cold War? China, America and the geopolitics of COVID-19VIEW EVENT DETAILS
The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed US-China relations to their lowest point in decades. Deep differences over trade, foreign policy and values have been sharpened amid increasingly hostile rhetoric. What is driving these developments and do they signal the dawn of a new Cold War? How is the pandemic and China’s “wolf warrior” diplomacy shaping the geopolitical contest in Asia? What impact are US and Chinese actions and rivalry having on other countries in the Indo-Pacific? And how should Australia best advance its interests amid deteriorating US-China ties, growing strategic competition and a polarising response to the call for an independent inquiry into COVID-19?
To discuss these issues, please join us for a special webinar featuring Ashley Townshend, Director of Foreign Policy and Defence with the United States Studies Centre, Lynn Kuok, Shangri-La Dialogue Senior Fellow for Asia-Pacific Security, IISS, and Richard Maude, Executive Director of Policy with the Asia Society Australia, in conversation with Lavina Lee, Macquarie University.
Date: Thursday 16 July 2020
Time: 11 – 12 p.m. AEST
Please note this event will run as a webcast only and is open to the public. Registration is essential. For any enquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
