On December 6, 2022, the U.S. secretaries of state and defense will host their Australian counterparts, the Australian ministers for foreign affairs and defense, for the 32nd iteration of AUSMINthe annual Australian-U.S. Ministerial Consultations. When Antony Blinken, Lloyd Austin, Penny Wong, and Richard Marles meet in Washington, D.C., they will exchange views on regional and global developments, discuss strategies for how to respond to those developments, and consider how to deepen bilateral cooperation in their foreign and defense policies.  

AUSMIN 2022 is not only a platform to facilitate dialogue among top leaders from the United States and Australia, but it can also serve as an enabling mechanism—harnessing shared values to propel a vision of the region forward. This CSIS report examines a range of pathways for U.S.-Australia cooperation to evolve and deepen. It draws from 22 leading experts who lay out more than 70 recommendations for how Washington and Canberra can elevate, sharpen, and advance the U.S.-Australia relationship. 

Please join the CSIS Australia Chair Charles Edel on December 1st at 3:00pm EST for a panel discussion with—Matt Goodman, Kelsey Hartigan, Mick Ryan, and Seiyeon Ji—to discuss the most critical challenges and opportunities facing the U.S.-Australia relationship.  

CSIS’s Australia Chair is dedicated to increasing understanding between the United States and Australia and serves as an independent platform to pursue policy changes that strengthen bilateral ties. The Chair is endowed through the generosity of Pratt Industries.
