AP4D Webinar - Southeast Asia Symposium

AP4D's Southeast Asia Symposium will be held on February 10, 12:00pm-1:30pm (AEDT).

Register now via Zoom.

Southeast Asia has been viewed as one of Australia’s highest foreign policy priorities since at least the 1940s. In practice, sustaining attention on the region has been difficult. The goal of the first component of AP4D’s inaugural research program is to generate more effective approaches to advancing Australia’s influence in Southeast Asia through the integrated application of development, diplomacy and defence perspectives.

The Symposium will launch five Options Papers which are the culmination of six months of consultations with over 150 experts from across the development, diplomacy and defence communities as well as regional specialists. This body of work outlines a vision for how Australia can put an integrated approach to foreign policy into practice in Southeast Asia.
