Hesitating on the brink of partnership

In this piece for the East-West Center, Washington, International Security Program Director Rory Medcalf argues that Australia and India are hesitating at the brink of real partnership in their strategic relations. It will take sustained political will on both sides over the next few years to bring the relationship to its potential. If these hopes end up unfulfilled, the reasons could well be connected to Indian perceptions, however misinformed, about Australian policies on uranium and on China. Rory Medcalf
