Twenty years since 9/11 with Major General Duncan Lewis and General David Petraeus
This year marks 20 years since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the United States, the precursor to US-led military operations in Afghanistan, joined by Australia.

For the two decades, counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency in theatres far from both the US and Australian mainlands was the dominant, operational focus of the Australia-US alliance. Now both Australia and the United States look to focus the Alliance much closer to Australia, the Australia-US alliance a key element in a network of allies and partners working on a wide array of challenges in the Indo-Pacific. What lessons should both countries take from the twenty years since 9/11 for this next phase of the Australia-US alliance?

To explore these questions, the United States Studies Centre (USSC) is honoured to host USSC Non- Resident Senior Fellow Duncan Lewis AO, DSC, CSC and General David H. Petraeus (US Army, Retired). Both held senior leadership roles in uniform and in civilian life during the post 9/11 conflicts and are uniquely well placed to discuss this topic. Moderating the conversation will be USSC Visiting Senior Fellow Ambassador Jane Hardy, whose most recent posting was as the most senior Australian civilian representative at INDOPACOM in Honolulu.
