ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Dialogue

The ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Dialogue is annual Track II initiative led by Asialink, the Institute of Strategic and International Studies Malaysia (ISIS-Malaysia) and the Asia New Zealand Foundation. It is an opportunity for leading Australian thinkers on Australia-Asia engagement to come together with their counterparts throughout the ASEAN-ISIS network and New Zealand to discuss major issues facing the region.

The AANZ Dialogue brings together key academics, economists, security analysts, business people, and diplomats to provide an opportunity for Australia and New Zealand to engage with their ASEAN counterparts on key regional issues.

Discussion topics typically include regional security architecture, irregular migration, regional maritime security, strategic economic initiatives, and countering violent extremism.

Asialink sponsors and leads for Australia the annual ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Dialogue, convened by the Institute of Strategic and International Studies Malaysia (ISIS-Malaysia) in partnership with the Asia New Zealand Foundation. The Dialogues are informal meetings among the ASEAN states, Australia and New Zealand focused around major issues in the region, and the roles that this group can play in their resolution.

The AANZ Dialogues are a valuable component of Asialink's Track II Diplomacy.

The ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Dialogue is invitation only.
