Canberra Launch: Challenges to the Rules Based Order: Agendas for Australia-ROK Cooperation

About this event

'Challenges to the Rules Based Order: Agendas for Australia-ROK Cooperation' is a major policy-oriented research report, supported by the Korea Foundation, on the opportunities for the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Australia to collaborate on the advancement of the regional and international rules-based order (RBO) and the institutional architecture underpinning it.
Conducted by Dr Lauren Richardson, the project has explored the potential for enhancing ROK-Australia collaboration on the development of the regional and global rules and architecture. In doing so, it aims to establish a comprehensive framework for how the two countries can coordinate bilaterally and multilaterally to achieve a more open and inclusive RBO. This provides a roadmap for:
  • Elevating the ROK-Australia bilateral relationship through greater institutional closeness
  • Enhancing the role of Seoul and Canberra in the international system
  • Encouraging the US to deepen its engagement with regional governance and rulemaking.
This launch is supported by the Korea Institute.


Lead Researcher, Dr Lauren Richardson will be joined by Associate Professor Ruth Barraclough, Vice President of the Asian Studies Association of Australia and Dongkeun Lee, PhD candidate at the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre at the Australian National University for a discussion on the challenges and opportunities for further opportunities between Australia and the Republic of Korea. The conversation will be moderated by Professor Tony Milner, Senior Advisor at Asialink, Visiting Professor at the University of Malaya and Emeritus Professor at the Australian National University
