Wednesday Lunch at Lowy: Re-inventing 'West Asia' - Anthony Bubalo presentation

On 21 February at the Wednesday Lunch at Lowy, Anthony Bubalo launched the Lowy Institute's fifth and newest program, the West Asia Program, incorporating the Middle East and South Asia. In his presentation Anthony explored the reasons why, today, it makes less sense to view these two regions separately, at least from a strategic perspective. He argued that the issues that increasingly gave 'West Asia' coherence as a single region were the same issues that were making the region an enduring part of Australia's strategic calculus.Anthony Bubalo
