The latest issue of Australian Foreign Affairs examines the rise of authoritarian and illiberal leaders, whose growing assertiveness is reshaping the Western-led world order.
The March of Autocracy explores the challenge for Australia as it enters a new era, in which China’s international sway increases and democracies compete with their rivals for global influence.
- ‘Cracks in democracy’: How authoritarianism has risen in China and elsewhere in the wake of COVID-19 and a global shift in power.
- ‘American reset’: What US foreign policy would look like under a Biden administration, and whether we can undo the mistakes of the Trump era.
- ‘Hostile environment’: Why Australia will need to form new alliances in the Asia-Pacific and change its approach to multilateralism.
- ‘The audacity of diplomacy’: What diplomatic and political levers does Australia have at its disposal in dealing with China?
Australian Foreign Affairs is published three times a year and seeks to explore – and encourage – debate on Australia’s place in the world and global outlook.
