Ambition: the emerging foreign policy of the Rudd Government

Local government Australia


In a new Lowy Institute Analysis entitled 'Ambition: the emerging foreign policy of the Rudd Government', Lowy Institute Executive Director Allan Gyngell explores what we have learned about the Rudd Government's emerging foreign policy, about the Prime Minister's own contributions to it and what questions it raises for the future.

"The defining feature of the Rudd Government's emerging foreign policy is its ambition. It seeks for Australia a shaping role in addressing a number of urgent international challenges. These include the creation of new global and regional institutions, the reinvigoration of nuclear disarmament and the successful negotiation of a new instrument to address climate change."
