Traditionally, discourse about nuclear conflict has focused on the Atlantic region. Asialink’s webinar discussed how the advent of major nuclear powers in the Indo-Pacific has created a more complex global nuclear threat dynamic. Panelists delved into emerging regional areas of nuclear tension, as well as proliferation potentials and drivers.
The webinar examined Australia’s role and responsibilities within this dynamic regional order and explore questions such as: How has the advent of new major nuclear armed powers created a more complex global dynamic? What are the emerging threats of conflict and nuclear risk in our region? Which leaders, movements, ideas can we expect to be influential in driving proliferation or deterrence in our region? On the other hand – what agents might rally to contain and eliminate nuclear threats?
Join Asialink Group CEO Martine Letts FAIIA, Former Director-General, Australian Safeguards and Non-Proliferation Office, John Carlson AM, Assistant Professor at George Washing University, Dr Fiona Cunningham, and Lowy’s Director of International Security, Sam Roggeveen for our second webinar in this series.
