The Alliance 70th anniversary with distinguished guests former Prime Ministers Julia Gillard and John Howard
September 1 marks 70 years since the ANZUS Treaty was signed in San Francisco in 1951, the first major international treaty Australia entered independent of the British government.

Today, the alliance between Australia and the United States — and the deep, long-standing channels of trust and cooperation it has fostered — is being tasked with more issues and with more urgency than at any point in its 70-year history.

Both John Howard and Julia Gillard presided over critical phases of change in the Alliance, around 9/11 and its aftermath for Howard and the Obama administration’s “pivot to Asia” for Gillard. How did each leader view the Alliance given the geo-strategic and security challenges they faced? How can their experiences of “Alliance evolution” inform the policy choices we face today?

Please join us for a webinar with distinguished guests former Prime Ministers Julia Gillard and John Howard to discuss these issues. Dennis Richardson, former Secretary of the Department of Defence, former Secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and former Australian Ambassador to the United States, will host the event.

To keep the conversation flowing, the Q&A feature will not be available for live questions during the event. Should you have a question for the panel, kindly submit it below via this online registration form.
