Abstract

This chapter will examine the successes and failures in Australian foreign and national security policy under the Abbott and Turnbull governments. Unquestionably, a shift in style and tone was strongly evident between Abbott and Turnbull alongside varying degrees of policy change in topical areas like counter-terrorism, Indonesia and the US alliance. These alterations in direction, re-formulation of interests and fluctuating levels of enthusiasm for different foreign and security issues appeared to be driven by shifts in international circumstances as well as the idiosyncrasies and different philosophies of the men themselves.
