The Hon. Paul Keating
Type of Event:
Public Lecture

The election of Trump and the victory of the Brexit movement are the most obvious examples of the populism driving countries to become more insular. This combined with China's return to a power of the first order means that Australia faces an increasingly uncertain world.

Come and hear from former Prime Minister Paul Keating about the path Australia should forge in this rapidly changing world. He has long argued a greater independence in Australian foreign policy could be beneficial and allow more focus on our immediate neighbours: Asian countries to our north.

This is an event not to be missed by those who care about Australia's future.

A collaboration of the Ideas and Society Program and La Trobe Asia and part of La Trobe University's 50th Anniversary celebrations.

TICKETS ARE CURRENTLY SOLD OUT
