APAN submission to DFAT white paper

The Australian Government is undertaking a Foreign Policy review, in the form of a ‘white paper’.

APAN made sure that voices for a fair policy for Palestine were represented, and our submission is now available on the DFAT website.

This is the first White Paper process since 2003 with the Government saying “The White Paper will provide a roadmap for advancing and protecting Australia’s international interests and define how we engage with the world in the years ahead.”

We have been deeply concerned with Australia’s policy regarding Palestine under this government, and hope that the process will provide an opportunity for some serious re-evaluation.
