The March on Autocracy
Australia’s Fateful Choices
The latest issue of Australian Foreign Affairs examines the rise of authoritarian and illiberal leaders, whose growing assertiveness is reshaping the Western-led world order.
The March of Autocracy explores the challenge for Australia as it enters a new era, in which China’s international sway increases and democracies compete with their rivals for global influence.
- Chinese culture and politics expert Linda Jaivin on how authoritarianism has risen in China and elsewhere in the wake of COVID-19 and a global shift in power.
- ‘American reset’: What US foreign policy would look like under a Biden administration, and whether we can undo the mistakes of the Trump era.
- ‘Hostile environment’: Why Australia will need to form new alliances in the Asia-Pacific and change its approach to multilateralism.
- Senior lecturer in international politics at Australian National University Darren Lim and research fellow at the Lowy Institute Natasha Kassam on what diplomatic and political levers Australia has at its disposal in dealing with China.
- Director of Foreign Policy and Defence at the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney Ashley Townshend on how and why Australia should lead an international initiative to counter disinformation.
