This stimulating three-week program provides participants with in-depth exposure to the full range of issues and challenges facing Australia’s national security community. It focuses on strategic thinking, critical analysis, policy-making, partnership-building and adaptive leadership principles. Participants will engage in rich dialogue with prominent thought leaders and senior practitioners in the field, and can expect to form strong and lasting professional networks with counterparts from across the sector. To enrich the learning experience, there is an international study tour and other site visits. The program equips participants to better understand and enhance their role in navigating uncertainty and effectively shaping national security policy and practice.
