The World Today presents The Future of the Indo-Pacific: Insight from the US and Australian Militaries
3803 Locust Walk Philadelphia, PA 19104
How do the U.S. and Australian militaries perceive the future of security in the Indo-Pacific? With the intensity of "strategic competition" between the United States and the People's Republic of China sharpening, both countries are developing their military capabilities for a potential clash and working toward developing international support for their efforts. Even while leaders in both Beijing and Washington are seeking to foster greater dialogue to reduce tensions, global military posturing continues apace.
Join Perry World House, in collaboration with the US Army War College's Eisenhower Series College Program, for a wide-ranging conversation about the critical global importance of the Indo-Pacific region. Members of the Eisenhower Program will discuss strategic competition in the Indo-Pacific, the role of allies and partners in this competition, and the potential economic costs of a conflict over Taiwan. Hear from military practitioners from the United States and Australian Armies about their perspectives on the future of security in the region.

Taking place every Tuesday, it is dedicated to a timely and intimate conversation on a global policy issue that changes each week. It is open to the entire Penn community, regardless of academic focus, and aims to be accessible and interesting to students who might not have the time to take classes on these topics but still want to deepen their understanding of the world. Members of the wider community are always welcome.
