The United States Studies Centre launched a new report by the Foreign Policy and Defence Program, titled Many Hands: Australia-US contributions to Southeast Asian maritime security resilience. While Australia and the United States already pursue a range of security cooperation activities in Southeast Asia, this report examines how they can work together with Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam to resist maritime coercion in the South China Sea.

The webinar featured the report authors: Andi Supriyanto (Universitas Indonesia), Professor Renato Cruz De Castro (De La Salle University), Dr Collin Koh (RSIS, Nanyang Technological University) and Dr Lan-Anh Nguyen (Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam), in conversation with USSC Research Fellow Dr Peter K. Lee.
