Policy, Guns and Money: After Covid-19, the far-right and ASEAN

In this episode, ASPI’s Leanne Close and Elise Thomas discuss right-wing extremism, conspiracy theories and some of the different groups disseminating them. They consider the responses from social media companies and offer suggestions on how governments should respond.

Next, Brendan Nicholson and Michael Shoebridge discuss volume two of ASPI’s After Covid-19 report series, which focuses on Australia, the region and multilateralism, and offers policy recommendations on how Australia and its neighbours can recover from the global pandemic.

Research intern Alexandra Pascoe then talks with senior analyst Huong Le Thu about some of the key outcomes from the recent ASEAN foreign ministers’ meeting and regional forum, including the talks’ focus on Covid-19 and the South China Sea.
