In Conversation with Sir Lawrence Freedman
Join us for a wide-ranging conversation with Sir Lawrence Freedman, the Lowy Institute's 2022 Distinguished Fellow for International Security and one of the world’s most respected military strategists.

The conversation will be moderated by the Director of the Lowy Institute’s International Security Program, Sam Roggeveen, and will include audience questions.
