2013 is an election year and we know that domestic issues will dominate the campaign and decide our next prime minister. But, at a time when the world is confronting major changes, our foreign policy directions are hugely important, too. In our first Fifth Estate for 2013, we’ll look at the foreign policy hurdles that lurk ahead, with host Sally Warhaft and three Lowy Institute experts in the field: Michael Fullilove, Linda Jakobson and Rory Medcalf.
