Join World Affairs and Asia Society Northern California for a dialogue with The Honorable Kevin Rudd, president of the Asia Society Policy Institute and former prime minister of Australia, who will look at some of the critical issues facing the Asia-Pacific region today and the challenges likely to emerge in the coming years. While Asia is home to some of the world’s fastest growing economies and a young, dynamic population, the region is also confronted with a number of issues that threaten to stymie the region’s rise. Growing nationalism, enduring security flashpoints in the Korean peninsula and the South China Sea, an ascendant China and climate change are just some of the factors that will demand attention and action in the coming years. The election of Donald Trump as the new U.S. president adds unpredictability to the region given his campaign promises to upend America’s role in the alliance infrastructure that underpins security, economic and political relationships in the region and the world.
