Lecture

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.
