At the Lowy Institute we have been saddened by the news of the untimely death of a highly valued colleague and Lowy Institute author, Andrew Symon. Several of us got to know Andrew over the past 18 months through the production of a highly-regarded publication he authored for the Institute on Nuclear Power and South-East Asia.

His understanding of Southeast Asia was held in great esteem, and his work for the Institute has been, and continues to be, read and appreciated widely in the foreign policy community in Australia and internationally, including by the International Commission on Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (ICNND), co-chaired by former Australian Foreign Minister Gareth Evans and former Foreign Minister of Japan, Yoriko Kawaguchi.

Through this, and his many other publications, he has a made a contribution to international policy-making and to the peaceful development of the region he knew and loved.
