Otago Foreign Policy School Spotlight on Asia Roundtable

Asia New Zealand Foundation is hosting a track II dialogue in Dunedin on Friday 30 June as a prelude to this year's Otago Foreign Policy School (OFPS).

You will be joining leading experts to discuss security/defence issues in North and Southeast Asia. The track II roundtable is a great opportunity for diplomats, academics, policymakes, and anyone interested in regional issues to learn more about, and engage in, the track II diplomacy process.

Following the roundtable is the 52nd OFPS; this year's theme is geopolotics in the context of migration.
