Event: Foreign policy in an election year - Melbourne

Australians will go to a federal election in a few months’ time. A fraught international environment is challenging the old rule that Australians do not vote on foreign policy questions. How will global issues — Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, China’s icy relations with Australia, climate change, the pandemic, and headwinds in the global economic recovery — influence the course of the election campaign?

On Monday 21 March 2022, the Lowy Institute hosted this discussion event to examine foreign policy and national security in this election year. The panel was chaired by Director of Research, Hervé Lemahieu and featured Senior Fellow for East Asia Richard McGregor, West Asia Program Research Fellow Lydia Khalil, the Director of the Australia's Security and the Rules-Based Order project Ben Scott, and the Director of La Trobe Asia Bec Strating.

Recorded Monday 21 March 2022 at State Library Victoria.
