Lowy Institute marks 60th anniversary of Australia-US alliance

Thursday 1st September marks a major milestone in Australia’s foreign policy history: it is 60 years since the signing of the historic ANZUS security treaty at the height of the Cold War. To mark this major event, the Lowy Institute for International Policy is hosting a range of events and launching publications examining the role of the Australia-US alliance today and into the 21st century. Last night, on the eve of the 60th anniversary, a new Lowy Institute Perspectives paper by Dr Steven Casey, Obama's alliances, was launched, examining President Barack Obama’s approach to alliances and what this means for the Australia-US alliance. This unique viewpoint on the alliance was discussed in both local and international media. Lowy Institute for International Policy
