Policy, Guns and Money: Strategic competition, PRC deterrence and Australia’s climate policy

Posted By on July 5, 2021 @ 11:00

ASPI’s Lisa Sharland is joined by Joanne Wallis, professor of international security at the University of Adelaide, to discuss her chapter on ‘Strategic competition and the Pacific islands’ in the Institute for International and Strategic Studies Asia–Pacific Regional Security Assessment 2021 [1]. They discuss the challenges posed by strategic competition in the region, opportunities for Australian engagement and why Australia should work more closely with partners in the region.

Malcolm Davis speaks to Lieutenant Colonel Kyle Marcrum and Brendan Mulvaney from the US China Aerospace Studies Institute about the concept of deterrence, something they explored in their recent ASPI report, To deter the PRC… [2] They discuss how the People’s Republic of China’s views on and approaches to deterrence differ from those of liberal democracies, and how Australia and its partners should respond.

Climate policy remains a hot topic in Australia. With Barnaby Joyce re-elected as Nationals leader and the federal government still not committing to net-zero emissions by 2050, Anastasia Kapetas and Robert Glasser discuss the Australian government’s current position and the climate risks for Australia and our near region.
