Is Russia a threat to international order?

Speakers: Emeritus Professor Paul Dibb, Assistant Secretary Paul Myler and Admiral (Ret’d) Chris Barrie

ASPI will host a panel to discuss the themes explored in the upcoming Strategy publication by Emeritus Professor Paul Dibb.

The paper analyses Russia’s geopolitical ambitions, its military modernisation, the threat it poses to the international order and how the West should respond. The prospects for the Russian economy are also examined to assess how economic weakness might affect Russian behaviour.

The paper concludes by addressing Moscow’s strategic priorities in the Asia-Pacific region and the implications of Russia’s rise for Australia.
