Dr Euan Graham - Executive Director

Dr Graham joined La Trobe Asia from the Lowy Institute, where he led the International Security Program. Dr Graham has specialised in Asian security and international relations throughout a career spanning consultancy, think tanks, diplomacy and academia.

Starting out in Southeast Asian studies, he went on to specialise in Japan’s sea-lane security for his doctorate, obtained from the Australian National University, in 2003. He maintains an active interest in maritime Asia.

After working as an Asia editor for Oxford Analytica, Dr Graham joined the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, covering Northeast Asia and Southeast Asia as a senior analyst, including  diplomatic experience in Manila and Pyongyang. In 2011, he joined the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, in Singapore, as a senior fellow in maritime security, teaching postgraduates and senior military officers.

Since joining the Lowy Institute, in 2015, Dr Graham has established himself as a prominent voice in Australia’s foreign and strategic debates, reflecting his understanding of Asia’s dynamics and Canberra’s policy environment. He has published widely on the South China Sea and North Korea, as well as less-covered topics, such as Australia’s security relations with Singapore. He is quoted regularly in the Australian and international media.
