In an era of strategic uncertainty in the world and in Australia’s region, marked by changing power balances, North Korean nuclear and missile provocations, and violent extremism, new questions have arisen about the best ways to ensure stability and security.

In this public seminar, Admiral Scott Swift discusses the forces that influence stability in the Indo-Pacific and the role of allied naval forces in navigating change and uncertainty. He anchors long-held norms such as a rules-based global order, peaceful settlement of disputes and freedom of navigation in the emerging regional order.
