The insignia of Member of the Order of Australia (AM), awarded to Gregory Copley in the Queen's Birthday Honours List of Australia, June 11, 2007.

Gregory Copley Awarded High Australian Honor

Art of Victory author honored for contributions to strategic studies.

Gregory Copley was invested with Membership in the Order of Australia by the Governor-General of Australia, at Government House, Canberra, on September 14, 2007.

The Commonwealth of Australia on June 11, 2007, announced in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List, that it had awarded The Art of Victory author Gregory Copley the honor of Member of the Order of Australia, one of the highest civil honors it can bestow. Mr Copley was in Canberra for meetings with the Governor-General of Australia, Maj.-Gen. Michael Jeffery, and with Chief of Army Lt.-Gen. Peter Leahy, just before the official announcement.

The investiture of the honor — which carries the post-nominal initials AM — was scheduled to take place later in 2007, but the Order’s citation indicated that the honor was being given for Copley’s contributions to international affairs and the study of strategic philosophy. Mr Copley is an Australian, but heads the Washington DC-based International Strategic Studies Association (ISSA). He helped establish Australia’s strategic research center, Future Directions International (FDI), and remains a director and chairman of its research committee. FDI is currently working on a major strategic position paper for Australia entitled Australia 2050, and Mr Copley is directing the research and analytical aspects of the study designed to examine Australia’s strategic operating environment and options through the first half of the 21st Century.

He has in the past received a number of national honors, but this was the first from his native country. His recent book, The Art of Victory, was hailed as a significant contribution to the study of grand strategy philosophy.
