We are living through rapid shifts in global power, as the rising influence of states such as China, India, Russia, Brazil and South Africa creates new and more complex patterns of global interaction. At the same time issues such as climate change, electronic communications, food and water security and epidemic diseases present new demands for effective global institutions.
To discuss how these changes impact on Australian foreign policy the Institute for Human Security at LaTrobe University has assembled a panel of experts to provoke your thinking: Andrew Hewett (Oxfam); Professor Joseph Camilleri (LaTrobe) and Professor Robyn Eckersley (Melbourne).
