Danielle Chubb – Australian Public Opinion, Defence and Foreign Policy: Attitudes and Trends Since 1945
In this seminar, Danielle will discuss the main findings of her most recent co authored monograph, “Australian Public Opinion, Defence and Foreign Policy: Attitudes and Trends Since 1945”. The book examines the impact of Australian public opinion towards defence and foreign policy from the mid-twentieth century to the present day. This book identifies and examines the key trends in the public’s view of defence and security, drawing on decades of longitudinal data around public opinion and Australian foreign policy, and provides insights into key foreign policy debates, including Australia’s alliance with the U.S., interactions with Asia and China, and the distinctive challenges posed to Australia by its geographic position.
