In this special event recording, Professor Rory Medcalf and Johanna Weaver are joined by Lisa Curtis and Martijn Rasser from the Center for New American Security to discuss their recent paper, A Techno-Diplomacy Strategy for Telecommunications in the Indo-Pacific. They argue that the Quad has an opportunity to shape the telecommunications ecosystem in the Indo-Pacific so that key 5G and undersea cable infrastructure are more secure, resilient, and open. Lisa and Martijn recommend that a concrete techno-diplomatic strategy – developed in partnership between Australia, the United States, India, and Japan – will be key to ensuring that the future of the Indo-Pacific is free and open.
