CSIS is pleased to present a discussion on the campaign and outcomes of Australia’s May 18 elections. Many have called this election as one of the most important Australian elections in a generation. Following a decade of leadership changes, a rapidly changing regional security environment and an increasingly changing economic climate, Australia has navigated a path between its security ally the United States and its top trading partner China like no other nation. Join Jacob Greber (U.S. Correspondent, Australian Financial Review), Dr. Zack Cooper (Research Fellow, American Enterprise Institute), Patrick Buchan (Director, the U.S. Alliances Project and Fellow, Indo-Pacific Security, CSIS),and Dr. Alan Tidwell (Professor of the Practice and Director of CANZPS, Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University) for a conversation moderated by Dr. Amy Searight (Senior Adviser and Director, Southeast Asia Program, CSIS) on what the election results mean and what policy decisions Australia may make from here.
