The roundtable covered the following critical questions:
- Are we returning to a world split by ideology and great power games? Is this inevitable or are other paths possible? What are the scenarios we face?
- What is Australia’s place in this emerging new world? What strategic options do we have available? How will our choices define our future?
- What will it mean to be a good global citizen in the 21stcentury? Will we be able to compete on security, while cooperating on environment and economic goals? How does Australia strike the right balance?
