Asia Power Index Launch

2019 Asia Power Index Launch
Global wealth and power are shifting eastwards, changing the way the world works politically and strategically. Join analysts from the Sydney-based Lowy Institute through a visual and analytical journey of the changing distribution of power in Asia. The event will mark the global launch of the 2019 Lowy Institute Asia Power Index, the largest comparative study of power in the region ever undertaken. Find out how countries rank in terms of their capacity to influence international events using eight measures of power: military capability and defence networks, economic resources and relationships, diplomatic and cultural influence, as well as resilience and future resources. This will be followed by a panel discussion with Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy scholars on the implications of the Index’s findings for the global balance of power in the 21st century. The event will conclude with a drinks reception and an opportunity for participants to personally engage with the Asia Power Index digital interactive.
