U.S. - China relations, North Korea and the Future of the Global Order: A Conversation with The Honorable Kevin Rudd

Relations between the United States and China are at their lowest point in recent history. A global trade war beckons, with far-reaching economic and political consequences. North Korea remains a major diplomatic, economic and security challenge for the U.S. and China, the wider region and the world. The global system of US alliances is under intense strain. And the future of the post-war liberal international order is deeply uncertain. How should we understand the future of U.S.-China relations in the era of Donald Trump and Xi Jinping? What does a trade war between the world’s two largest economies mean for the region and the world? What are the implications of US-China dynamics on North Korea? How do we preserve Asia’s ‘long peace’ into the future? And how can we sustain the international rules-based order for the benefit of all? Join the Honourable Kevin Rudd, former Prime Minister of Australia and President of the Asia Society Policy Institute, for a public lecture and discussion on these questions and others.
