Choosing Sides: Shaping Our Relationships in the Asian Century

Choosing Sides: Shaping Our Relationships in the Asian Century

Professor Hugh White
Professor Hugh White.

Public Lecture with Professor Hugh White

Australians do not want to choose between the US and China, but whether we have to or not depends on the choices both countries make about their relationships over the coming decades.

Will China aim to push America out of Asia?  Will America agree to share power with China or insist on maintaining primacy itself? Can they negotiate a new way of working or will they slide into increasingly intense rivalry?

How can Australia influence the outcome, and which should we prefer?

This public lecture will launch the two-day Fulbright symposium "Australia-US Relations and the Rise of China: From Bilateralism to Trilateralism?", managed by Deakin University.
