Australia now has a seat at the two biggest global tables: the G20 and the United Nations Security Council, says Lowy Institute Executive Director Michael Fullilove. This will increase our international leverage and reputation, and be a source of prestige. However, it will stretch our foreign policy establishment, too.

In a video response to the news of Australia's win at the UN Security Council, Michael talks about what it means for Australia and what happens next.
