After Covid-19 (Part 2): National security in focus

About this event

How can Australia ensure our national security as we rebuild after Covid-19?

This webinar continues the conversation on ASPI’s latest publication ‘After Covid-19: Australia and the world rebuild (Volume 1)’, focusing on Australia’s national security. 

As Australia considers how to rebuild and reopen, co-editor and contributing author of the publication, John Coyne, talks with contributing authors Leanne Close, Head of ASPI’s Counter-terrorism Program, Marcus Hellyer, Senior Analyst with ASPI’s Defence, Strategy and National Security Program, and Tom Uren, Senior Analyst with the International Cyber Policy Centre, about Australia’s national security with a focus on organised crime, policing, supply chain resilience, and cybersecurity. How can Australia adapt to the 'new normal' and emerging security challenges to ensure the security of its citizens?
