Objective. Balanced. Brief.
The Poli Brief is a start up multimedia platform backed by development, defence, diplomacy and democracy experts who share a vision for smart foreign policy.  This means talking straight about trade offs, balancing competing national interests, and committing to evidenced-informed public policy making. 

No time to read the best think tank articles and cutting edge research in international affairs?  We want to bridge the gap between analysis and policy-making.  Pronto.


Our best ideas come from you.

“Now, development was once the province of humanitarians, charities, and governments looking to gain allies in global struggles. Today it is a strategic, economic, and moral imperative—as central to advancing American interests and solving global problems as diplomacy and defense.”

— Hilary Clinton
at the The Center for Global Development

"Australia’s capacity to shape the world by persuading others will determine how effectively we can deal with the unparalleled international challenges ahead. That requires us to coordinate all our national assets in new ways."

— Allan Gyngell AO
at the inaugural Asia Pacific Development, Diplomacy and Defence Dialogue

Ladies and gentlemen, as we walk forward as one Ocean Continent, I will reiterate and continue to reiterate that any engagement with the Pacific must take note and respect these circumstances as this is how we have managed to remain a stable and secure region. After all the momentum of the Blue Pacific reminds and inspires ‘us all’ to value the strategic potential of the region, and to act together from a position of strength."
