US-China Relations during COVID-19

Relevant to VCE Global Politics, Unit 3 Area of Study 2, Power in the Asia-Pacific.

This event is free to members and $50 for non-members.

Purpose & Focus: The global Coronavirus pandemic has intensified strategic competition between the two great powers of the Asia-Pacific, the US and China, and has accelerated existing trends that are changing the nature of the regional security order. This discussion traces the political and economic contours of strategic competition between US and China prior to and during the global spread of COVID-19, and considers the factors that have contributed to a more uncertain region during the pandemic. The implications of the changing regional balance of power for other states, particularly Australia, will also be considered.   

About the Presenter: Dr Bec Strating is the Executive Director of La Trobe Asia and a Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Relations in the Department of Politics, Media and Philosophy at La Trobe University.
