Japan and Australia in the 21st Century

A Talk by Roger Pulvers
April 12, 2018

The relationship between Japan and Australia seems now to be closer than ever. But is it on the right track? Do Japan and Australia really share values? Do their views of the region and the world coincide, particularly when it comes to the future of relations with the United States and China?

Roger Pulvers offers his thoughts on how proactive policies by Japan and Australia could potentially provide a basis for peace in a volatile global environment. This talk explores ways in which the two countries, together, may be able to navigate the foreseeable dangers ahead and play a leading role in the future direction of world affairs.
