ASAJ Kanto Regional Meeting and University of Tokyo CPAS Joint Seminar:
"Australian Foreign Policy in between US and China"

9 November 2019
University of Tokyo, Komaba Campus, Building 18 (map)
 

A joint academic meeting between Australian Studies Association of Japan, Kanto Regional meeting and the Center for Pacific and American Studies, University of Tokyo will be held on 9 November. Free of charge, no registration necessary 

Speaker: Professor David Lowe (Deakin University, Visiting Professor at the University of Tokyo

Title: Australian Foreign Policy in between US and China

Australia now seems to face perhaps the most difficult challenge in foreign affairs in history. On trade or widely economic matters, Australia has relied upon China more than ever.  On the other hand, in terms of security, Australia is getting closer to the United States more than ever. Can these two positions co-exist? As Australia finds in sitting in the middle of the lock and a hard place, what could Australia do?

Visiting Professor David Lowe at the Centre for Pacific and American Studies at the University of Tokyo is the leading scholar in the history of Australia's foreign policy and would provide us valuable perspective.
