AJYD Webinar: The Prospects for Quad 2.0

Claudia Chan on 13 7月 2021

Join the AJYD and 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.

Join the Australia-Japan Youth Dialogue as we discuss this evolving situation with a panel of experts.
