ASPI China Masterclass

ASPI China Masterclass – Canberra

The ASPI China masterclass is a one-day intensive event that will give participants a strategic understanding of how China is seeking to shape the world around it. Participants will learn and debate with specialists on China with deep knowledge of the current security, political and thematic landscapes. The Masterclass will track China’s global and regional ambitions, and review the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP)  investments in cyber, intelligence, defence, space & social credit. This event will offer a deeper understanding of China, the CCP and its rapidly evolving place in the world and explore the policy implications for Australia and the Indo-Pacific region more broadly.
