Australia's international future

In a new Lowy Institute Perspective, Michael Wesley, the Executive Director of the Lowy Institute, addresses the challenges ahead for Australia and the Lowy Institute. The world after the Global Financial Crisis will be a world which asks some very searching questions of Australia’s foreign policy makers, businesspeople, and citizens. How should Australia respond to the new position of China as a key power determining the future of collective global issues? What are the challenges to Australia’s economy as posed by an increasingly knowledge-intensive and Asia-centric global economy? How will Australian society adjust to new concepts of risk and new sensitivities to systemic instability? Michael Wesley addresses these and other issues, and in doing so, outlines his vision for the Lowy Institute over the next five years.Michael Wesley
