Date & time
The security landscape is changing rapidly. Challenges to the US-led security order are advancing faster than anticipated. They are both old and new – from cyber security and foreign interference to transnational terrorism and weapons of mass destruction – posing multiple threats, increasing uncertainty, instability and risk. Meanwhile, concerns about the rise of China and America’s commitment to the Indo-Pacific are prompting new trading and defence arrangements.
How will nations, including Australia, navigate these challenges? What might the future security order look like?
Sitting at the nexus of international and domestic threats and opportunities, national security is at the heart of contemporary statecraft. The next generation of security policy specialists will need to respond rapidly and with sound judgement.
In this seminar, ANU National Security College academics and policy professionals will share their insights into the emerging security environment. College staff will also be on hand following the seminar to discuss the benefits of a career in national security.
