Do political events in Europe, military tensions in Asia, and policies pursued by the Trump administration herald a structural change in the global policy environment?

Are the norms, standards and institutions that Australia relies on to maintain global relations under challenge?

This research considers the implications for Australia from these actual and potential global shifts,

  • in trade and investment;
  • in security; and
  • in governance and institutions.
