Our first 'India in Focus' event will be presented as a live recording of La Trobe Asia’s Asia Rising podcast with Lisa Singh - Deputy Chair, Australia India Council and Former Australian Senator (2011-2019).

India and Australia stand to benefit greatly through deep and ongoing engagement. Both states share common interests in priority areas such as defence cooperation, science research and technology development. Efforts have been made to identify opportunities for deepening economic engagement – such as Australia’s India Economic Strategy to 2035 - and there is a vibrant India diaspora in Australia that forms the central pillar of people-to-people engagement between the two countries.

Despite some share interests between the two states, there is a shallow public interest and understanding of India in Australia, and the coverage of the country is often cursory and limited in scope. Growth in understanding would be in the national interest of both countries. How can we better promote understanding of India in Australia, leverage shared interests, and strengthen national, business and societal relations?
The 'India in Focus' seminar series will highlight India related research at La Trobe University from all disciplines, allowing conversation and analysis on specialised topics with academics and experts.

You can choose to join us for one, two or more seminars on India.

Each seminar will have a 45 min presentation followed by 15 min Q&A.
