The National Security College is a leading institution in national security teaching, outreach and research, and a unique partnership between the Australian Government and The Australian National University. Building on these strengths, we strive to draw government, academic and industry expertise together to build whole of community perspectives on important national security topics, foster dialogue, drive rigorous policy analysis and provide practical options for the future.
We engage with the national security community to deliver quality policy thinking through a range of activities, such as conferences, roundtables and deep dives, and through a range of practical policy publications.
Identifying emerging trends and anticipating disruptive change is crucial to policy work. Our Futures Hub works with the policy community to explore plausible futures and understand their implications for current thinking.
