ASIS at 70
May 6, 2022 @ 4:00 am - 5:00 am
You are invited to join the Robert Menzies Institute on Thursday 5 May2022 at 6pm for a talk on ASIS at 70: Understanding Menzies’ Creation of Australia’s Secret Service by Visiting Fellow Dr William Stoltz.
Dr Stoltz is a Senior Adviser for Public Policy at the National Security College at the Australian National University. Dr Stoltz’s research for the RMI explores the Menzies government’s creation of the Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS) in 1952.
The creation of ASIS 70 years ago is one of the less examined legacies of the Menzies government, not least because its existence was not officially acknowledged until 1977, and many records regarding its creation still remain classified. Dr Stoltz’s presentation therefore promises to be ground breaking and unique.
When: 5 May 2022 6:00pm-7:00pm
Where: Old Quad, The University of Melbourne, Parkville VIC 3010
