The election of Trump and the victory of the Brexit movement are the most obvious examples of the populism driving countries to become more insular. This combined with China's return to a power of the first order means that Australia faces an increasingly uncertain world.

In this La Trobe University Ideas and Society session, hear former prime minister Paul Keating and Professor Allan Gyngell discuss the path Australia should forge in a rapidly changing world. Keating has long argued a greater independence in Australian foreign policy could be beneficial and allow more focus on our immediate neighbours: Asian countries to our north.
