AJYD Webinar: The Prospects for Quad 2.0

Claudia Chan on 13 Jul 2021

Join the AJYD and our panel experts as we discuss the future and prospects of the renewed Quadrilateral Security Dialogue.

AJYD Webinar: The Prospects for Quad 2.0

March 2021 marked the first meeting between leaders of the ‘Quad’ since its formation. It originally emerged as a disaster relief framework back in 2004, and later evolved into a security dialogue, although the framework never formally materialised. Despite the initial failure of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue in 2007, the project is once again being brought to the fore by leaders in Australia, Japan, India and the US. Our expert panel will discuss this evolving situation, with a focus on the new drivers and prospects of cooperation between Quad members as well as the various changes to the regional environment since its inception in 2007.

Our expert panellists joining us are:

Dr Maria Rost Rublee (Associate Professor of International Relations at Monash University)

Dr Akira Igata (Visiting Professor & Executive Director at the Centre for Rule-making Strategies at Tama University)

Ms Hayley Channer (Senior Policy Fellow at Perth USAsia Centre)

Ms Sonia Arakkal (Policy Fellow at Perth USAsia Centre)

Moderated by Australia-Japan Youth Dialogue's Ms Erin McCullagh
