Welcome to The Interpreter

As editor of The Interpreter, this is a proud day for me. More importantly, it is a bold new step for the Lowy Institute. As Executive Director Allan Gyngell said, 'The Interpreter is a major new initiative for the Lowy Institute for International Policy. Since its founding in 2003, the Lowy Institute has quickly built a reputation as a leading think tank in the Asia-Pacific and an influential global voice. This blog adds another dimension to our work: it aims to provide you with fresh insights into international events and a new way to engage with the Institute.'

The content of the blog will reflect the research interests of our staff and the concerns of our readers. We will comment on breaking international political and strategic events, economics and trade, transnational issues like terrorism, climate change and epidemics, and Australian foreign policy.

The Interpreter will also give you a new perspective on the daily activities of the Lowy Institute. It will host video interviews with some of the many scholars, policy-makers and opinion leaders who visit us. It will report on the debates and roundtables we host at our Sydney headquarters. And Lowy Institute staff will provide perspectives on countries they are visiting.

The Interpreter aims to be required reading for anyone interested in the subjects covered by the Lowy Institute. We seek a global audience, but our perspective is Australian. Like the Institute itself, The Interpreter has a strong commitment to analytic integrity. Its editorial stance is independent, non-partisan and directed towards informing and deepening the debate about international policy. Click here to go to The Interpreter’s homepage.
