The Quad, the informal grouping consisting of Australia, India, Japan and the US, is not a formal alliance. It has, however, developed as one of the important forums in global geopolitics. To help us better understand the relevance of the Quad, Jada Fraser and Eerishika Pankaj will lead a discussion to be followed by Q&A with the audience.
