What is AAMEP?

Launched in 2019, AAMEP is the sister program to AIMEP, connecting emerging leaders from Australia and the wider ASEAN region. The intensive 10-day program gives delegates the opportunity to engage in intellectual and cultural dialogue, with the aim of developing mutual understanding and strengthening cross-country relationships.

Drawing on two decades of experience from the Australia-Indonesia, Australia-Malaysia, and Australia-Thailand programs, AAMEP reflects the diversity of multicultural Australia and Muslim communities in Southeast Asia. Participants include artists, academics, organisers, scholars, educators, and many other leaders from across the religious, business, political and social spectrum.

AAMEP is delivered by Australia Indonesia Connections; a Melbourne-based consultancy directed by Rowan Gould and Brynna Rafferty-Brown.
