How should Australia manage risk in its relationship with the People’s Republic of China (PRC)? Peter Varghese argues in a China Matters Explores policy brief that Australia needs to help craft a new “strategic equilibrium” in the Indo-Pacific which involves both constraining and engaging the PRC. He joined Dennis Richardson and Michael Clifton in a webinar moderated by Linda Jakobson to discuss the principles that should guide Australia’s China policy.
