The stakes for war and peace could hardly be higher and the strategic importance on northern Australia is lifting. This Masterclass will assess new challenges for Australia’s strategic interest in the face of a rapid build-up of Chinese military and security capability across all fields while evaluating the need to deepen practical cooperation with our strategic partners. Participants will hear from a range of experts who will offer their insights in this fast-developing environment.
