Globalists or nationalists: who will shape the future in an era of distrust

Presented by ANU College of Asia & the Pacific

We live in times of uncertainty, where escalating political divisiveness has led some to call for a new paradigm to bridge the divide between two seemingly opposing perspectives: Globalists and Nationalists.

Will the next generation of leaders - and citizens - be able to build a more cohesive world? Who will take the lead? And what will the future look like? Our expert panel will debate this issue and provide their views on one of the most controversial debates of our generation.
