On this episode of Defence Connect Insight Podcast, visiting fellow at the Griffith University Asia Institute, Dr Peter Layton, unpacks the forward-looking problem-solving approach that is grand strategy.

Dr Layton and host Steve Kuper delve into the importance of building such a strategy for Australia, why China's expansion into the Pacific could be a cause for concern, and how Australia can respond to this challenge in light of its long-term objectives.

Dr Layton explains the difference between grand strategy and national interest, who is responsible for co-ordinating this approach, and how other middle powers have tackled the implementation of grand strategies to their benefit.
