A platform for collaboration between the development, diplomacy and defence communities.
AP4D brings together individuals and organisations united by a mission to reimagine Australia's international relations.
AP4D provides a platform for constructive dialogue, fresh ideas and future-focused debate on Australia's role in the Asia-Pacific.
“Australia’s capacity to shape the world by persuading others will determine how effectively we can deal with the unparalleled international challenges ahead. That requires us to coordinate all our national assets in new ways. AP4D is a model for what needs to be done.”

"Our strategic circumstances demand we overcome foreign policy silos. AP4D is the platform for integrated debate, fresh ideas, and the merging of interests between development, diplomacy and defence communities."
