Australia’s neighbourhood is changing, with shifts in the foundations that have underpinned security and prosperity for decades. There are concerns among US allies that American economic and military influence is in decline as China’s influence grows. This is occurring against a backdrop of a rising India, Japanese rivalry, and Southeast Asian reluctance to follow the leader, with the Asian landscape more crowded and contested than ever before.

Can Asia’s rising giants cohabit peacefully, or will the region face damaging competition and conflict? This is a defining question of our time – and one on which Australia’s future peace and prosperity depends.
