Kevin on the Future of U.S.-China Relations

SUMMARY REPORT: http://belfercenter.org/USChina21 The future relationship between China and the United States is one of the mega-changes and mega-challenges of our age. China’s rise is the geopolitical equivalent of the melting polar ice caps – gradual change on a massive scale that can suddenly lead to dramatic turns of events. In his Summary Report of a longer forthcoming work, former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, a senior fellow at the Belfer Center, asks if this defining trend of the 21st century can be managed peacefully. He argues that it can – if Washington and Beijing commit to placing their relationship on a stable, long-term footing. Rudd's findings emerge from a major study he led at the Belfer Center on the possibilities and impacts of a new strategic relationship between China and the United States.

Reconciliation: Respect, Rights and Recognition

In this 2015 ANU Reconciliation Lecture recorded at ANU, Mr Rudd explores the role of symbols in our cultures and identities, and the fundamental need to link symbolic national gestures like the Apology with substantive actions and measurable outcomes, like the Closing the Gap strategy to overcome Indigenous disadvantage. Mr Rudd examines the next step in Australian reconciliation – the recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our nation’s Constitution, and the call for the inclusion of constitutional reforms as part of that process to shift the symbolic to the practical. He looks at the process to date and the need for a respectful, national discourse on recognition and rights. Mr Rudd offers his own perspective on the need for bipartisan, national political leadership to advance genuine reconciliation in Australia. Kevin Rudd is uniquely placed to offer his perspective on reconciliation in the Australian context as the Prime Minister who delivered one of the landmarks of our nation’s reconciliation journey – the National Apology to the Stolen Generations delivered on 13 February 2008, his first Parliamentary act as Prime Minister.

Intelligence Squared - Are China and the U.S. Long-term Enemies?

Is China's ascendancy a threat to the U.S.? China's rise as an economic and military power, coupled with its aggression in the South China Sea, have led some to call for a major rebalance of U.S. policy and strategy. Can China be trusted to act as a responsible global stakeholder? And will they be a long-term ally, or adversary?
