Wednesday Lunch at Lowy - Dr Bates Gill presentation

On 5 September 2007 at the Wednesday Lunch at Lowy, Dr Bates Gill spoke on the topic of 'Asian regional architecture: the debate in Washington.' How is Washington looking at the future institutional architecture in Asia and how involved does the United States wish to be? In the US debate this question relates to the role of America's alliances, the value of formal multilateral structures versus 'coalitions of the willing', and the value of an inclusive trans-Pacific approach compared to a narrower Asia-based multilateralism. Dr Bates Gill surveyed these debates and looked ahead to America's likely future involvement in the region.Bates Gill
