2020 Lowy Lecture, to be delivered by Fareed Zakaria
The Lowy Institute is delighted to invite you to attend the virtual 2020 Lowy Lecture, to be delivered by Fareed Zakaria.

One of the world’s most interesting and influential observers of international affairs, Fareed Zakaria is the host of CNN’s weekly foreign affairs program Fareed Zakaria GPS. He is also a columnist for The Washington Post and a contributing editor at The Atlantic. Dr Zakaria will evaluate the turbulent year in world politics marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, the growing rivalry between the US and China and the bitterly fought US election. The Lowy Lecture will be followed by an extended Q&A with Lowy Institute Executive Director Dr Michael Fullilove.

The annual Lowy Lecture is the Lowy Institute’s flagship event, at which a prominent speaker reflects on Australia and the world. Past Lecturers have included German Chancellor Angela Merkel, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, former CIA Director David Petraeus, News Corp Chairman Rupert Murdoch, Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Lowy Institute Chairman Sir Frank Lowy and Prime Minister John Howard, who delivered the inaugural Lowy Lecture in 2005.

The Lowy Institute is grateful for the support of the sponsors of the 2020 Lowy Lecture: BHP and Capital Group
