Partner Event: Choosing Openness: Why global engagement is best for Australia

Event Type: Partner Event

Date: Tuesday Oct 3, 2017, 6:00 pm

In the early part of the twentieth century, the world turned inwards as fear shut down flows of people and goods across national borders. A century later, can we make a better choice?


Please join us for the launch of Choosing Openness, a new Lowy Institute Paper by the Hon Dr Andrew Leigh MP and published by Penguin Random House Australia.
 
Across the developed world, global engagement has become a major political fault line. Some say that trade, investment, and immigration are threats rather than opportunities. Global uncertainty, rising inequality, and populism present real challenges to globalists. Choosing Openness argues that Australia’s past prosperity has flowed from engaging with the world. An open Australia requires stronger advocacy and smarter policies.

 

In-conversation with Andrew Leigh and Anthony Bubalo, Deputy Director and Research Director of the Lowy Institute, followed by a Q&A.
