Policy, Guns and Money: Hong Kong, wolf warriors and Australia’s strategic update

In this episode, Louisa Bochner of ASPI’s cyber centre speaks to Axios China reporter Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian about the Hong Kong national security law, how it’s being applied and what the law means for China’s relations with the US, Australia and other democracies.

Next, ASPI’s Marcus Hellyer and Malcolm Davis take on Australia’s defence strategic update, discussing its significance, what’s new, what it means for the defence budget and where it falls short.

And finally, Tom Uren and Fergus Ryan from ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre discuss the role of China’s ‘wolf warrior’ diplomats on Twitter and their attempt to shape global discourse, and the desire among Chinese citizens to jump the Great Firewall and get Twitter accounts of their own.
