Fullilove on the Foreign Policy Positions of Romney and Obama

COMPELLING VIEW: The Lowy Institute’s Dr Michael Fullilove launched his paper The Audacity of Reasonableness yesterday in Sydney. The paper examines the likely foreign policy differences between the Obama and Romney camps, observing that Obama is less dovish and Romney less hawkish than we might have expected and that overall the similarities are more notable than the differences. Dr Fullilove suggests the greatest differences will be substantive policy on Russia, Israel and multilateralism and the UN.

The full video of the event is not yet available, but below you will find a short 6-minute summary piece. The paper can be downloaded here.

Remember, the AIIA NSW will host two events on the US election in the coming month, firstly on Tuesday 23 October and then on Wednesday 7 November. Details on both events will be on the www.aiia.asn.au/nsw-events soon.
