The World Order Post Covid – What Role can Australia Play?

As the world slowly emerges from Covid and all its complexities the only constant seems to be change. What role does Australia currently play, as a key player, in regional and international politics and is this likely to change? Is Australia a responsible global citizen? We have a wonderful opportunity to gain insight into these questions from Professor Gareth Evans, Australia’s former Foreign Minister and President Emeritus of the International Crisis Group.
