Who we are

IPAN is a network of community and church groups, trade unions, peace and anti-war organisations, and concerned individuals from across Australia, united by our support for an independent Australian foreign policy based on peaceful resolution of international conflicts.

Responding to this common goal, groups around Australia in September 2012 launched the Independent and Peaceful Australia Network (IPAN).

There are about 50 organisations (see 2019 list here) affiliated to IPAN, and also about 50 individual supporters.

The network welcomes all national and local groups that support our aims, and is working to broaden the involvement of as many organisations and individuals as possible.

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.
