During the nearly 12 years of the Howard Government (1996-2007), Australian foreign policy was characterised by vibrant bilateral relationships in Asia and the South Pacific, a commitment to regional economic and security architecture including APEC and a long standing Alliance relationship (ANZUS) with the United States. Today, Australia's neighbourhood faces a series of significant foreign policy challenges including the instability on the Korean Peninsula, tensions in the South China Sea and the ongoing threat of terrorism from extremist elements including Jemaah Islamiyah. These challenges also pose an opportunity for Australia to work closely with its neighbours on a collective and effective response. These issues and others will be explored.
