The ANU has announced they’re providing talent to the ABC’s News24 channel for “Future Forum – How Will the Asian Century Shape Australia’s Future?”.
The first in the Future Forum series will be filmed in Darwin with an eight-strong expert panel moderated by ABC Lateline presenter Ali Moore. The ANU panellists are: Dr Katherine Morton, Dr Nicholas Farrelly, Professor Andrew MacIntyre and Professor Hugh White.
The discussion will kick off with a background briefing that paints a picture of the Asian region growing economically and in global influence and power, as US dominance wanes. The question will then be posed: what choices and changes will Australia be confronted with in this new world and what do we need to do to ensure we are not left behind?
Questions will be taken from the audience, and a resource-rich ABC Future Forum website established to provide access to research and information on the topics discussed, to take the conversation further.
The Future Forum series is being produced as a joint venture between ANU and ABC News 24, with support and input from the HC Coombs Policy Forum working in cooperation with the Communications and External Liaison Office at ANU.
