Who we are

IPAN is a network of organisations around Australia – community, faith and peace groups, trade unions and concerned individuals – aiming to build public dialogue and pressure  for change to a truly independent foreign policy for Australia – one in which our government plays a positive role in solving international conflicts peacefully.

IPAN Vision

An independent and peaceful Australia

IPAN Mission

Advocate for an independent and peaceful Australia, free of foreign military bases, and free of interventions by other foreign Governments, corporations, or vested interests, that at present seek to exert undue influence in shaping Australia’s foreign and defence policies in a manner that diminishes Australia’s sovereignty

Acknowledgement

We acknowledge the traditional custodians the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and respect their continuing culture.  We acknowledge their country was violently seized 230 years ago, and affirm that genuine independence of Australia cannot be achieved without a just and sovereign Treaty with the indigenous people of this land.

The Independent and Peaceful Australia Network
