Power, Politics, and the Spectre of War | Q+A
Australian Broadcasting Corporation | November 17, 2022
This week on Q+A, as world leaders converge on Bali for the high-powered G20 summit, it’s clear that it’s a vastly different global landscape since last they met. The war in Ukraine, a looming global recession, a pandemic that’s far from over and China’s growing power are all likely to be on the agenda.
Anthony Albanese is taking his place at the summit for the first time, amid anticipation of a meeting with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping and signs that the relationship is getting back on track. But will the PM have to concede any ground to maintain good relations? Can Australia stand firm against Chinese ambitions in the region while still working closely with the economic superpower?
In the US, Donald Trump’s push towards a 2024 presidential bid may have been derailed somewhat by the midterm election results, but is it dangerous to discount him? Will the Republicans repudiate their controversial leader or are they still in thrall to Trump?
And with COP27 drawing to a close – is the world finally ready come together to deal with the challenges of climate change? Or will it be each country for itself?
