Australia and Korea: Middle Power Parallels
‘Australia and Korea: Middle Power Parallels’ is a three-part project by Asia Society Australia and Asia Society Korea seeking to provide new understanding to the unique position of Australia and Korea in regional geopolitics and how it intersects with their respective trade and economic status. Both nations must balance their relationships with the United States and China, are seeking to diversify their trade dependencies, and remain vulnerable to tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
The project focuses on these three parallel challenges and brings together leaders from government and corporate sectors in Australia and Korea to strengthen alignment and understanding, exchange lessons and to inform the next phase in our bilateral relationship.
Supported by the Australia-Korea Foundation in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the project will include public programs, private briefings, policy briefs and the appointment of Australia and Korea based Fellows who will offer subject-matter expertise and curate key activities.
The Australia and Korea: Middle Power Parallels project is supported by the Commonwealth through the Australia-Korea Foundation, which is part of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. This project is undertaken in partnership with Asia Society Korea.
