Australia’s maritime interests are under pressure. This two-day program considers evolving naval capabilities within the Indo-Pacific region. The impact of migration, trade, resource exploitation, and transnational and serious organised crime on Australia’s national security will be considered in this program. Participants will consider these challenges and their implications for Australia and the Indo-Pacific. Engage with subject matter experts about the South China Sea, ASEAN, exclusive economic zones, people smuggling and weapons proliferation – and how Australia might best respond.

The program is designed for anyone in or outside of government who would benefit from a greater understanding of maritime security. There is no minimum security clearance requirement.

Past presenters for this program include: Professor Donald Rothwell FAAL, Professor Rory Medcalf, Professor RADM (RET) James Goldrick and others.

The course was an excellent opportunity to develop and refine my thinking on maritime security, put the burning questions on my mind to a range of experts and build my networks with colleagues across government. It was an enriching, stimulating and very enjoyable course that was directly applicable to my current work.
