Description

A PUBLIC LECTURE BY

Professor Hugh White
Australian National University

LIGHT REFRESHMENTS TO FOLLOW from 7:30pm to 8:15pm

Both Australia and New Zealand face truly historic challenges to the way they each approach their security as Asia's strategic order is transformed by major-power rivalries. The two countries confront these challenges from rather different starting points, but also with much in common. In this talk Hugh White will draw on his recent book How to defend Australia to explore Australia's approach to the new strategic environment, and to offer some thoughts about New Zealand's options and choices.

Hugh White AO is Professor of Strategic Studies at the Australian National University. His work focuses primarily on Australian strategic and defence policy, Asia-Pacific security issues, and global strategic affairs especially as they influence Australia and the Asia-Pacific. He has served as an intelligence analyst with the Office of National Assessments, as a journalist with the Sydney Morning Herald, as a senior adviser on the staffs of Defence Minister Kim Beazley and Prime Minister Bob Hawke, and as a senior official in the Department of Defence, where from 1995 to 2000 he was Deputy Secretary for Strategy and Intelligence, and as the first Director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI). His recent books include How to Defend Australia (Black Inc., 2019) and The China Choice: Why America Should Share Power (Black Inc. 2013).
