The future of the Indo-Pacific region is being buffeted by an array of complex forces including the return of great power rivalry, rising illiberalism, and growing nationalism.  La Trobe University is privileged to be able to host Australia’s Foreign Minister, the Hon Julie Bishop MP, who will deliver the first keynote address in Australia on foreign policy since the publication of the Turnbull Government’s foreign policy White Paper in November 2017.

Minister Bishop has been invited to discuss the significant foreign policy challenges Australia is facing in the Indo-Pacific and how Australia can promote its interests in the fast-changing regional and international environment.

The Foreign Minister’s address will be followed by a La Trobe University panel discussion with Professor Nick Bisley, Head of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences; Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow Tony Walker, and Dr Rebecca Strating lecturer in international relations in the Department of Politics, Media and Philosophy.
