Sydney Launch: 2023 Lowy Institute Poll - Australian attitudes to the world
More Australians feel safe than last year, their belief in democracy remains strong, and they are relatively hopeful about Australia’s economic outlook. But what do Australians see as the key threats to the nation? How do they view China in the context of thawing Australia–China relations? What do they think of AUKUS and nuclear-powered submarines? And do they think Australia’s ties with the Pacific are improving?
At our event in Sydney we unpacked the findings of the 2023 Lowy Institute Poll with a panel of Lowy Institute experts.
Now in its nineteenth year, the Lowy Institute’s flagship 2023 Lowy Institute Poll is the longest-running and broadest survey of Australian public opinion on foreign policy and global events. It is the key resource for anyone seeking to understand how Australians see the world and their place in it.
Our panel of experts included: Damien Cave, Australia Bureau Chief, The New York Times; Dr Meg Keen, Director of the Pacific Islands Program at the Lowy Institute; and Hervé Lemahieu, Director of Research, the Lowy Institute. The discussion was chaired by Ryan Neelam, Director of the Public Opinion and Foreign Policy Program and the author of the 2023 Lowy Institute Poll.
