Please join the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) for a special AsiaConnect teleconference with ASPI President and Senior Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School the Honorable Kevin Rudd. Mr. Rudd will share his perspectives on the U.S.-China relationship and discuss how China and the United States can build a new way forward that creates wider peace and prosperity without conceding vital national interests. This discussion coincides with the release of Mr. Rudd’s major research report for the Harvard Kennedy School, U.S.-China 21: The Future of U.S.-China Relations Under Xi Jinping.
The Hon. Kevin Rudd joined the Asia Society Policy Institute as its inaugural President in January 2015. He served as Australia’s 26th Prime Minister (2007-2010, 2013) and as Foreign Minister (2010-2012). He led Australia’s response during the global financial crisis — the only major developed economy not to go into recession — and helped found the G20. As Chair of the Independent Commission on Multilateralism, Mr. Rudd is also leading a 2015-2016 review of the UN system. Mr. Rudd is a Distinguished Fellow at Chatham House in London, a Distinguished Statesman with the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, and a Distinguished Fellow at the Paulson Institute in Chicago.
