Monday 23 July was the Melbourne launch of Australian Foreign Affairs 3 – Australia & Indonesia: Can We Be Friends?
The third issue of Australian Foreign Affairs examines the turbulent relationship between the two neighbouring countries, and the missteps and missed opportunities that have prevented the forging of a friendship. The issue is crucial reading for anyone wanting to understand the intricacies of one of Australia's most important relationships. As Asia’s power balance changes, the two neighbours need to deepen ties now to avoid a wider gulf in the future.
Hosted in partnerhip with the Australia–Indonesia Centre at the Monash Conference Centre, Melbourne, the event hosted a thoughtful panel discussion from Professor the Hon Gareth Evans AC QC FASSA FAIIA (Chancellor, Australian National University), Professor Tim Lindsey (Director of the Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society, The University of Melbourne) and Dr Nasya Bahfen (Senior Lecturer, La Trobe University). The discussion was moderated by Helen Brown (Digital Economy Fellow, The Australia–Indonesia Centre).
