AIIA South Australia

The Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) is an independent non-partisan, non-profit organisation devoted to the promotion and discussion of international affairs and global issues. The Institute hosts an active program of speakers throughout the year focused both on ongoing global issues, as well as current events and issues affecting the world today.

Established in New South Wales in 1924, and in Victoria in 1925 as branches of London’s Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House), the AIIA was created as an Australian entity in its own right in 1933, and today has branches in all states and the ACT.

The South Australia AIIA is located in the CBD of Adelaide and organizes regular events engaging with the key issues in international affairs, including how they impact Australia nationally and also at the state level.

AIIA South Australia is governed by a Council comprised of members from a wide variety of backgrounds, all with a keen interest in international affairs, and is strongly supported by volunteers and interns, and by the generosity of its members. Membership is open to all Australian residents, corporate bodies, diplomatic representatives, schools and students.

Event Details

Join the AIIA South Australia's youth-led Emergent Track Program and kickstart 2024!

After the hot chips, cold drinks, find out what we've been cooking up behind the scenes.

Joining us will be the Branch Council, made up of senior policy makers, retired foreign service professionals, and notable academics.

This is an excellent opportunity to chat with some of SA's top minds and get advice on whatever you're planning this year.

Last year's AIIA branch intern, Billy Mak, will tell us about his experiences and how these helped him.

See you there and remember to bring a friend!

The Emergent Track is a member-led wing of the AIIA SA Branch dedicated to carving out space for young people in International Affairs. We offer professional development, access to a passionate community, and valuable insights on International Affairs.

Sign up to the branch and have a chat with Steph Madigan or Robert van Gorp to hear more about this project.
