Professor Greg Austin, Australia’s leading specialist on cyber policy in China and a researcher on Chinese strategic policy for more than 30 years, will make a presentation on the subject of “The Sino-American Information Wars: Implications for Australia”.

This seminar analyses the intensifying conflict between China and the United States in global information spaces, and how both countries are executing this conflict in Australia.

Actors in this activity include intelligence agencies, embassies, private individuals, and a range of civil society organisations. The seminar will also address the priorities, methods and decision-making for political intervention by these two countries in Australia.The discussion should help policy makers, journalists and scholars critically evaluate the character and scale of foreign political "interference" in this country and suggest a more measured approach in proposed legislation to curtail such activities.
