UNSW Canberra has been proudly educating the future leaders of the Australian Defence Force at ADFA since 1967.

International & Political Studies involves the study of power in a rapidly changing global environment, covering the major actors, ideas and key issues of domestic, regional and global politics that have a profound impact on Australia’s national security and its place in the world.

The John Howard Reading Room and the collection that underpins it adds another dimension to UNSW’s National and International Research leadership.

The collection covers the period of John Howard’s entire political career.



The Howard Library is seeking donations of political memorabilia.

From former politicians, parliamentary staffers, media advisers and members of the public including letters, photographs, souvenirs, election material such as signs, badges and stickers, and even campaign novelties for the period: 1996 – 2007.
