STRATEGIKON 106 – Hitting Reset – Australia’s Foreign Policy Challenges Under Albanese

John is joined by the editor of Australian Foreign Affairs Magazine, Jonathan Pearlman, to discuss how Australia’s new Albanese government will approach foreign policy.

They discuss the current status of The Quad, with a focus on India’s curious position within the group. How does the rising South Asian power’s tradition of non-alignment affect The Quad’s progress, and furthermore, could India’s poor human rights record affect the group’s cohesion?

Jonathan also explains how Australia’s historically rigid foreign policy and diplomacy approach must become more adaptable amid the shifting power dynamics within the Asia-Pacific region.
