Plague, protest and political upheaval ... 2020 saw the shifting of tectonic plates as the pandemic threw the world into disarray. Mass protests broke out over everything from government corruption to police brutality. And China was at the centre of it all, a force to be reckoned with on every front. In the final edition of the ABC's A Foreign Affairs segment for 2020 the guests were Amanda Hodge, Southeast Asia correspondent for The Australian newspaper; Michael Wesley, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, International, at the University of Melbourne; and Stephen Loosley, Former ALP Senator and now Non-Resident Senior Fellow, at the United States Studies Centre.
