Australia's Opportunities in Security and International Development

February 8, 2016 • 7:30 – 9:00 pm EST

Andrew Shearer
Former National Security Adviser of Australia

Moderated by:
Daniel F. Runde
William A. Schreyer Chair in Global Analysis and Director, Project on Prosperity and Development

As a vital U.S. partner, Australia is a key ally in promoting global security and economic prosperity, particularly in the Asia Pacific and Middle East. In a rapidly changing global system, the use of soft power to achieve these strategic interests has become increasingly important. In particular, the Australian government sees foreign assistance and development programming as a key complement to traditional security and foreign policy tools.

Please join us for an armchair conversation with Andrew Shearer, former Australian National Security Adviser, on how Australia views challenges and opportunities through the lens of international development, and how Australia works with diverse stakeholders, including the private sector, to achieve its development and security objectives.

This series is made possible by support from the Chevron Corporation.
