Event description

Description

The global geopolitical landscape is shifting towards Asia. It can be seen in China’s bold infrastructure project reopening the historic Silk Road and in the maritime success of port cities like Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Asia is rising but so are its connections to Central Asia, Turkey and Europe. Perhaps the best word to capture the emerging global order is 'Eurasian'.

At the Melbourne launch of his new book The Dawn of Eurasia, Bruno Maçães will discuss the increasing strategic significance of Eurasia, the dominance of China, Russia and the EU, and how the United States is redefining its place in between.

Bruno Maçães is a Senior Advisor at Flint Global in London and a Senior Fellow at Renmin University, Beijing and the Hudson Institute in Washington. He was the Portuguese Europe Minister from 2013-2015, and was decorated by Spain and Romania for his services to government.

Euan Graham is the Executive Director of La Trobe Asia. He is an expert in Asia and IndoPacific security, Australia's strategic policy, and maritime issues.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.

A La Trobe Asia event. Bruno Maçães’ visit is supported by Adelaide Writer’s Week.
