AUKUS and its Aftermath

Author: DAVID CAMROUX
The French Australian Review 73 (Australian Summer 2022-2023): 5-20

In this transcript of his talk presented at an ISFAR seminar in the series ‘After the Elections: Is a Reset possible in French-Australian Relations?’, the author comments on the political situation in France following the French elections in May 2022 and then examines the response to the AUKUS decision in France and the import of the AUKUS decision in terms of Indo-Pacific geopolitical relations. He then comments on the positive response to the visit to France by newly-elected Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and surmises that a return to the relationship that flourished in the 1990s and early 2000s may evolve.

Keywords: AUKUS, French-Australian relations, Macron, Albanese, Indo-Pacific, South-East Asia.
