The announcement of the Australia-UK-US (AUKUS) agreement in mid-September generated vastly more comment than most arms deals. The French government was livid, the Chinese government called it ‘extremely irresponsible’ but most governments in Asia sat on the fence. In this talk, Bill Hayton will offer some thoughts on what AUKUS means for Britain, its relations with both Asia and Europe and the reshaping of the international order.
