The Perth USAsia Centre located at The University of Western Australia is a non-partisan, not-for-profit institution strengthening relationships and strategic thinking between Australia, the Indo-Pacific and the U.S.A.. The Centre is a leading think tank focusing on geo-political issues, policy development and building a strategic affairs community across government, business and academia. Since the Centre’s inception, we have collaborated with over 30 partners to convene more than 400 events across 11 cities in 7 countries, engaging a world class community network of more than 4,500 strategic thinkers and leaders.
In just over three years the Centre has successfully embedded itself as an influential thought leader, recognised in Perth, Australia and across the wider Indo-Pacific region for contributing significantly to strategic thinking, analysis and commentary on international relations across our dynamic region. The Centre has exceeded expectations in building a strategic affairs community in WA and has developed as a regional hub for Indo-Pacific thought leadership and international engagement. The Centre has advanced Australia’s interests in both the region and, in collaboration with our sister Centre the United States Studies Centre (USSC) at the University of Sydney, with the United States.
The Perth USAsia Centre consists of a Board of Directors and a high-calibre team of think-tank and operational staff, along with an array of research fellows.
The Perth USAsia Centre is proudly supported by The University of Western Australia, the Australian Government, the American Australian Association Ltd and Rio Tinto.
The Perth USAsia Centre is located at the University of Western Australia alongside Perth's iconic Swan River.
