About Us

We foster stronger connections, educate and empower our community across government, business, higher education and civil society, to better understand the critical issues facing our region.

Based at The University of Western Australia, we are a non-partisan and not-for-profit institution.

Through our research and educational activities, we strengthen strategic thinking between Australia, the Indo-Pacific, and the United States, and engage thought leaders to address challenges and opportunities in the Indo-Pacific region.

Since our inception in 2013, we have informed a diverse community of more than 27,000 people, at more than 750 events, across 25 cities in 10 countries.
