Advancing the national interest in a globalising world

In December 2006, the Lowy Institute for International Policy hosted a seminar on 'Australia and World'. The seminar built on the contemporaneous launch of three Lowy Papers on the Australian economy, foreign and defence policy. Leading scholars, commentators and practitioners were asked to talk about the major international trends likely to shape Australian interests over the coming years, and what policy settings would be required to deal with them. Attached is a Lowy Institute Perspective by Dr Nick Bisley, who was the rapporteur at the seminar. This Perspective is not a summary of the proceedings but the response of one participant to the debate and discussion.Nick Bisley
