Event description
A discussion with two of Australia’s leading experts on US foreign policy: Tim Lynch (Melbourne) and Brendon O’Connor (Sydney)

About this Event

What type of foreign policy is President Trump trying to implement? What are its historical and philosophical antecedents? What politics constrain or embolden the Trump international agenda? Will it work? Or is Trump failing for the same reasons that his predecessors did? Is the international system undergoing a transformation? You are invited to join two of Australia’s leading experts on US foreign policy in debating these questions.

Tim Lynch is Associate Professor in American Politics at the University of Melbourne and chair of the political science discipline. His latest monograph, In the Shadow of the Cold War: American Foreign Policy from George Bush Sr. to Donald Trump (Cambridge, 2019) has been called ‘a cogent, graceful, provocative account’ of its subject.

Brendon O'Connor is Associate Professor in American Politics at the University of Sydney. Brendon is the editor of seven books on anti-Americanism and has also published articles and books on American welfare policy, presidential politics, US foreign policy, and Australian-American relations. His latest book is Anti-Americanism and American Exceptionalism: Prejudice and Pride about the USA (Routledge, 2019).
