Australian Foreign Affairs and Readings Carlton are thrilled to announce a panel that will expand the way you think about Australia and its place in the world as we launch AFA5. This fifth issue of Australian Foreign Affairs examines Australia’s struggle to define its identity and place in Asia as it balances its historic ties to the West with its geography.
