Lowy Institute's picture

The Lowy Institute is an independent, nonpartisan international policy think tank located in Sydney, Australia. Ranked as Australia’s top think tank, the Institute provides high-quality research and distinctive perspectives on the trends shaping Australia and the world and fresh policy options on these questions.

The Institute also hosts debates and discussions within Australia and internationally. The Institute’s vision is an open Australia, engaged with the world. Our work is inspired by the knowledge that Australia’s future depends on our capacity to understand, and respond to, a rapidly changing world. We know that Australian views and ideas can make a real contribution to dealing with global challenges.

Our role is to generate and disseminate those ideas widely. Our ambition is to be the premier think tank in Asia and the Pacific on international affairs and issues that affect Australia and the region, in the interests of greater security and prosperity. Our unique position in the Asia Pacific region supports our ability to interpret and influence the debate on the world’s most dynamic region and Australia’s role in it.

The Institute’s research and analysis is accessible to anyone seeking to better understand foreign policy challenges facing Australia within the Asia-Pacific, and the global implications of developments in the region. The Lowy Institute team of leading experts conducts research through eight primary research divisions: Australia and the World, East Asia, West Asia, Melanesia, International Security, International Economy, Global Issues, and Polling.
