Konrad Adenauer Lecture Series

Australia & Pacific

The Konrad Adenauer Lecture Series is focused on enhancing understanding of Germany and Europe in Australia and the wider region. Since the inaugural Konrad Adenauer Lecture took place in November 2017 it has presented a variety of high ranking international speakers. The establishment of the prestigious annual Konrad Adenauer Lecture was the culmination of an ongoing collaboration between the ANU Centre for European Studies (ANUCES) and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS). Over a number of years ANUCES and KAS have worked to bring together researchers and policymakers on issues of critical importance in both Europe and Australia. Their collaborative events and publications have promoted dialogue among scholars and practitioners to address common problems and identify shared interests. ANUCES and KAS formalised their partnership in the form of their commitment to an annual, high-profile lecture series and subsequent papers.
