The Big Picture
Towards an Independent Foreign Policy
Australia’s top thinkers on foreign affairs address the most significant foreign affairs dynamics affecting Australia today, including the rise of China and the election of Donald Trump. The world is changing, and so is Australia’s place in it. What do we need to know? What do we need to think about?
The Big Picture is an essential exploration of Australia’s position in the world today.
- Paul Keating discusses changes occurring in the United States, Europe and Asia and how Australia should respond.
- Allan Gyngell looks at the collapse of long-held beliefs underlying Australian foreign policy and the need to prepare for growing uncertainty.
- George Megalogenis analyses Australia’s changing demographics and the rapid increase in migrants from China and India – a development that comes with both challenges and benefits.
- Linda Jakobson examines China’s evolving reach and ambitions under Xi Jinping and what this could mean for Australia and the region.
