China’s Rising Influence: How to Respond?

Date:
28 March 2018

Time:
5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Location
Macquarie University City Campus, Level 24, 123 Pitt Street


China’s rising influence – as an economic powerhouse, a military force, and within our societies – is increasingly felt worldwide. Concerns about Chinese “hard” and “sharp” power are on the rise as countries in Europe and the Asia-Pacific take grapple with how to maintain constructive relations with China while deflecting Chinese government efforts to reshape regional security, access sensitive information, and influence elite and public opinion in favour of Chinese interests. Our panel will take stock of these developments, assess the differing responses in European and Asia-Pacific countries, and consider the implications for relations with China in the years ahead.

Panelists to include: Mathieu Duchatel from the China and Asia Programme and the European Council on Foreign Relations; Bates Gill, Professor of Asia-Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University and Sheryn Lee, Associate Lecturer in Security Studies at Macquarie University, with Dr Peter van Onselen from The Australian and University of Western Australia as the event moderator.

Catering and drinks to follow. We hope to see you there!
