Events have become an increasingly important part of ASPI's approach to meeting its mandate. It does so through the following programs:
- Visitors Program
- 1.5 Track Dialogues
- ASPI Events
- Defence and Security Lunches
- Publication Launches
- Public Meetings
- Global Forces Conference
Further our event program is planned to include major lectures, conferences of senior opinion leaders in the wider community, summer schools for people at different levels, including specifically a talent-spotting seminar for promising young strategic thinkers.
We will also hold regular informal seminars for the policy community in Canberra, and build a program of seminars and other events in centres around Australia.
Each year we plan to bring a number of prominent international experts on defence and strategic issues to Australia for visits that may range from a few days to several months.
ASPI will also undertake dialogues on strategic issues with a number of key regional countries.
