AUKUS and the Future of Alliances in the Indo-Pacific
An address by The Hon Tony Abbott, former prime minister of Australia.
Australia’s recently concluded deal with the US and the UK over nuclear-propelled submarines is viewed by many as not only a project designed to boost the capabilities of the Royal Australian Navy, but also a means to contain China and bolster US-led efforts to deepen alliance capabilities in the Indo-Pacific region.
In his address, Mr Abbott discussed the agreement, its implications for the tripartite AUKUS alliance, and the future of the Indo-Pacific region.
The webinar is moderated by Professor Malcolm Chalmers, Deputy Director-General, RUSI.
