Activity description
 In a recent article for Foreign Affairs, the Biden administration’s incoming Indo-Pacific Coordinator, Kurt Campbell, writing with Rush Doshi, calls for a strategy to restore balance and legitimacy to the Indo-Pacific. They observe that the scale and pace of China’s economic and military rise, combined with the disruptive effects of some recent American policy, have together destabilised the region. They argue that the United States must conceive a strategy, in collaboration with its allies and partners, that restores both a balance of power to the Indo-Pacific and a collective belief in the legitimacy of its rules and norms.
The 2021 Australia-India-Japan Trilateral will explore what that strategy should look like, what allies and partners should do to craft and refine it, and what is needed to achieve a more robust regional balance of power and a more legitimate set of rules, norms, and institutions.
Participants from academia, think tanks, the media, and government in Australia, India, and Japan will be asked to address a range of issues around the above.
