Activity description
 The AIIA would select established scholars largely from Taiwan and Australia to speak at the roundtable and early career professionals and academics from Australia to watch the presentations and ask questions. Where appropriate, speakers from other countries may be invited, but the focus of the roundtable would be on an international issue of interest to Taiwan and Australia. The roundtables would be held under the Chatham House rule, although officials, media and members of the diplomatic community may be invited to participate as observers, so that the ideas generated by the roundtables may be disseminated more broadly. In addition, the Taiwanese speakers at the roundtable would be invited to participate in a closed-door briefing with a select audience.

This forum was shifted online and the initial roundtable will take place in November 2022. Some of the panellists will be submitting publications, which will be edited, formatted and sent to AIIA stakeholders and others interested in international affairs.

The AIIA does not produce information on behalf of foreign principals. The AIIA acts as a forum for discussion and debate and ensures that the speakers and authors it invites maintain an independent and critical voice. The AIIA is itself a completely independent forum and does not hold an institutional view on any matter of international affairs.
