Event description

Description

Marty Natalegawa, Indonesia's Former Foreign Minister, will deliver CPD's inaugural annual John Menadue Oration as part of our 10th-anniversary series.

Pak Marty has been described as "one of the most respected foreign policy and international security thinkers of his generation, both within Indonesia, in South East Asia, and in the broader Asia-Pacific region". His address will focus on the health of democracy and the international rules-based order.

There will be a cocktail reception after the oration.

Dr Raden Mohammad Marty Muliana Natalegawa (Dr Natalegawa) served as the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Indonesia from 2009-2014. Prior to his appointment as Foreign Minister, he served as the Permanent Representative of the Republic of Indonesia to the United Nations in New York from 2007–2009.

Dr Natalegawa also served as the Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia to the United Kingdom and Ireland from 2005-2007, and in the years 2002–2005, he consecutively served as the Chief of Staff of the Office of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and as the Director General for ASEAN Cooperation in the Department of Foreign Affairs.

His term as Director General for ASEAN Cooperation coincided with Indonesia’s chairmanship of ASEAN, a period marked by intensive effort to promote the idea of an ASEAN Community which was formally endorsed by the member countries through the 2003 Bali Concord II.

He served at the Permanent Mission of Indonesia to the UN between 1994 and 1999, including during Indonesia’s membership of the Security Council in 1996-1997.

In addition to his Doctor of Philosophy from The Australian National University, Dr Natalegawa completed a Master of Philosophy at Corpus Christi College, University of Cambridge, and a Bachelor of Science (Hons) at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

CPD's inaugural annual oration has been named in honour of John Menadue AO, CPD's founding Chairperson, in recognition of John's contribution to public policy in Australia and to CPD. John served as Secretary of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet under Prime Ministers Gough Whitlam and Malcolm Fraser, was Australia's Ambassador to Japan and held senior roles in the business community. He remains a CPD fellow.
