Konrad Adenauer Lecture 2020
MULTILATERALISM & REGIONAL COOPERATION IN TIMES OF GLOBAL CRISES Australia and Europe and the International Order
The COVID-19 crisis is making clear how many of today's global challenges cannot be contained within national borders and require sustained cooperation amongst trusted partners and in international fora. For Australia, taking a more active role in shaping a free and open Indo-Pacific extends beyond its immediate geographical neighbourhood and rests on increased engagement with like-minded nations to set norms and standards. Similarly, the EU (as well as NATO) is reorienting its outlook to adapt to the major strategic realignment underway and is looking to build stronger ties with value partners. This requires a rethink of what successful international engagement means and what cooperative networks around the shared goal of an open Indo-Pacific could look like.
3rd European-Australian Cybersecurity Dialogue - Session 3
‘Cybersecurity in Crisis Times - A Way Forward for Europe and Australia’
The annual KAS Australia-Europe 1.5 track Cybersecurity Dialogue, this year already in its third iteration, aims to bring together policy makers, experts and practitioners from Europe and Australia to share insights and experiences. Usually, this is achieved through a combination of roundtables, an in-depth seminar and meetings at various institutions and ministries, as well as the respective federal, state and EU Parliaments – alternating between Canberra/Sydney and Berlin/Brussels as locations. This year’s dialogue will take place in a virtual format where speakers' short input statements will be followed by an interactive discussion amongst all invited experts.
