Australia’s Oldest Public Affairs Magazine

Since 1929 AQ: Australian Quarterly has been packing its pages with the debates that shape Australia and the world. Bridging the gap between academic journal and glossy magazine, AQ brings you articles from experts at the forefront of the issues. Grounded in evidence, yet written in a style accessible to everyone, AQ is unique in Australia’s publishing landscape, pushing back against the trends of subjective truth and media spin.

AIPS acknowledges the generous support funding provided by the Commonwealth Government through a grant in aid.
