Australian Institute of International Affairs

The Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) is a non-profit think tank based in Australia. Established in 1924 and formed as a national body in 1933, the organisation endeavours to promote interest in and understanding of international affairs. It consists of seven independent branches in each State and Territory (excluding the Northern Territory), along with the National Office located at Deakin, Canberra. It has approximately 1600 members.

The AIIA is an independent, non-profit, non-political organisation. Its constitution precludes it from holding or expressing an opinion of its own on any matter of international affairs.

It undertakes to achieve its mission of promoting interest in and understanding of international affairs by promoting debate, disseminating ideas, educating on issues and collaborating with other individuals and organisations.

The AIIA also collaborates with like organisations in other countries, as well as with private and public sector organisations and departments within Australia and abroad.

    To quarrel with the uncertainty that besets us in intellectual affairs would be about as reasonable as to object to live one’s life with due thought for the morrow because no man can be sure he will alive an hour hence.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    Whenever any form of government shall become destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, & to institute new government, laying it’s foundation on such principles & organising it’s powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety & happiness.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    The Australian mind, I can state with authority, is easily boggled.
    Charles Osborne (b. 1927)
