The 2017 conference provides a unique opportunity to hear and engage directly with experts on Australia’s international affairs. To secure a seat at the leading event on Australia’s foreign policy calendar REGISTER NOW.

AIIA Masterclasses

The 2017 national conference will be preceded by masterclasses for young professionals and tertiary students between the ages of 18 and 40. The 2017 masterclasses will be held on Sunday 15 October with the support of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

The masterclasses enable motivated young people to engage one-on-one with AIIA Fellows who are leading figures in Australian international affairs. The overriding criterion for the selection of our Fellows is a very high level of distinction in and distinguished contribution to Australia’s international relations.

Four Masterclass sessions will be available to choose from:

  • Defence & Security
  • Diplomacy & Trade
  • Diplomacy & Intelligence
  • Aid and Development
