Ali Moore, Gareth Evans, Chris Barrie, Sow Keat Tok, Chen Hong, Charles Edel, Merriden Varrall, and Sam Mostyn

What if maritime forces of the United States and China clash in the South China Sea, and Australia is called on to come to America’s aid? How far would we be willing to go in a skirmish between our strongest military ally and our biggest trading partner?

At the first event in our This is Not a Drill series, Ali Moore and our expert panellists will steer us through choppy diplomatic waters, and formulate the best strategic response.

Presented in partnership with Asialink, the University of Melbourne.
