AP4D Parliamentary Launch | A Whole-of-Nation Approach to International Policy

February 9, 2024

On the morning of Thursday 8 February at Parliament House in Canberra Minister for Foreign Affairs Penny Wong and Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Birmingham launched a new AP4D paper: What does it look like for Australia to take a whole-of-nation approach to international policy.

The culmination of four months of extensive consultations with 113 experts and 93 organisations, the paper tracks the entry into policy and public consciousness of the whole-of-nation concept and explores how it can be put into practice.

AP4D is grateful for the ongoing support of the Australian Civil-Military Centre, the AP4D Advisory Group for their advice and guidance, and the options paper contributors for sharing their expertise.
