'Australia Foreign Policy Futures: Making Middle-Power Leadership Work?', Keynotes 08, Canberra: Department of International Relations, Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies, The Australian National University, April 2008.

The Australian Foreign Policy research cluster in the Department of International Relations brings together scholars whose work examines various dimensions of Australia’s engagement with the world. They combine conceptual analysis and theoretical investigation with evidence-based, policy relevant research. The commentary pieces presented in this Keynote offer some thoughts on the direction of Australia’s foreign policy under a new Labor government, focusing on issue areas in which the new government has sought to make its mark early or which it has identified as a central pillar in Australian foreign policy: the environment, the Pacific, the relationship with the United States, and trade as key to future prosperity.
