Murdoch University's Vice Chancellor Professor Richard Higgott invites you and your guest to attend the 2012 Sir Walter Murdoch Lecture.  Hegemonic Boss Dragons and Two-Sun Skies: The Rise of China and the Future of the Asia-Pacific will be presented by Professor Kim Richard Nossal, the Sir Edward Peacock Professor and Director of the Centre for International and Defence Policy at Queen's University, Ontario, Canada.

This year's lecture will explore the shift in the centre of gravity of global politics that has given rise to the idea of the "Pacific Century", dominated by the countries that ring the Pacific Ocean.  Professor Nossal will examine the evolving debate, and will suggest that these reflections about the future are actually far more threatening to peaceful relations in the Asia-Pacific than the political and military developments that gave rise to the debate.

This event is free but RSVPs are essential.
