As the United States confronts a critical choice between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, how do Australians view our security ally? Have Australian perceptions of China changed? What should the government do about climate change, and do Australians support renewable and nuclear energy?         

Now in its 20th edition, the Lowy Institute’s flagship annual poll is the longest-running and broadest survey of Australian public opinion on the world. For two decades, it has revealed changing attitudes and played an influential role in the public debate on foreign policy. 

Join us in Sydney for this special launch of the 20th edition of the Lowy Institute Poll.  


Dr Michael Fullilove AM, the Executive Director of the Lowy Institute, will deliver some opening remarks.
