The Australian Institute of International Affairs is partnering with the Australian National University and Bond University to present the 'Australian Diplomacy Today Symposium' at the Australian National University on 28 August 2015. The event will be opened by the Secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Mr Peter Varghese AO.
The symposium has the aim of bringing the small but growing community of practitioners and scholars with an interest in Australian diplomacy together to reflect, share ideas and critique recent successes and developments in Australian diplomacy and to consider challenges and opportunities ahead.
It will be a full-day event with a reception to follow, supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's Public Diplomacy Division. There will be a number of prominent speakers presenting on a broad range of topics grouped into four areas of diplomacy: Forums, Tools, Actors and Themes. Following each group of presentations, a practitioner with rich experience in the field will give a response to the addresses.
The symposium will be free and open to the public through online bookings. To view the program and register your attendance CLICK HERE
