How are the US and China handling the Covid-19 situation? What are the impacts of these decisions domestically, and particularly for Australia's relationship with the two states?
The pandemic is fundamentally reshaping the global strategic landscape. Although the global crisis requires international cooperation, we're seeing US-China tensions rise with coronavirus blame strategies and discussions of economic decoupling. How will the balance of power shift, and what is the world going to look like on the other side of the pandemic?
Facilitated by Bill Birtles, ABC's China correspondent, this discussion will analyse Covid developments in Australia, China and the US, and the socio-economic impacts. Our panel includes scholars specialising in political science, Asia-Pacific security, and government and international relations.
This conversation is co-presented with the China Studies Centre.
