New Voices 2013: Foreign policy my dear? Why Australians should give a damn.

The Lowy Institute is now welcoming applications to participate in this year's New Voices event, to be held at the Institute in Sydney on 14 June 2013.

New Voices is an annual event that attracts some of the most talented young leaders in business, academia, government, and the not-for-profit sector. New Voices seeks to provide a platform for young professionals to offer fresh insights and perspectives on important questions of Australian and Asia-Pacific foreign policy and international affairs. 

The event will be exclusive two-hour panel discussion to be followed by a cocktail event with keynote speaker John Garnaut. The panel topic —'Foreign policy my dear? Why Australians should give a damn' — aims to tackle the broader question of why Australians and Australian political parties are not more motivated to engage with foreign policy issues.

  • Michael Ware — A journalist and former war correspondent based in Baghdad for TIME Magazine and CNN;
  • Michael Fullilove — Executive Director of the Lowy Institute;
  • David Pocock (to be confirmed) — Australian rugby union player and co-founder of not-for-profit organisation Eightytwenty Vision; and
