About The Conference

The Oxford AUKUS Dialogue 2024 will bring together government officials, industry, academics, investors and students to explore how private capital and investment can contribute to the success of AUKUS into the future.

The trilateral conference builds on the highly successful AUKUS seminar series and AUKUS Defence Investor Network roundtable hosted by the Changing Character of War Centre’s Emerging Threats and Technology Group at Oxford earlier this year.

One clear theme that emerged from our group discussions was that private capital offers extraordinary yet largely untapped opportunities to enhance asymmetric national security advantage from AUKUS.

Given what is at stake with rapidly evolving geostrategic instability, it is important that this potential advantage is explored expeditiously. This is a critical moment for our three nations in which innovative trilateral partnerships will be vital to advance our shared mission.
