National security in a disrupted world

Australia's challenging strategic circumstances demand we adopt a truly integrated approach to 'national security'. How does security relate to other key dimensions of the national interest: economic prosperity, social cohesion and sustainability? How does it relate to foreign policy? How do we connect national security imperatives with the principles that underpin Australian identity – like equity, inclusion and democracy? What are the rights and responsibilities of the state, the private sector and our diverse civil society? 

Join us for this important talk and discussion with our special guest speaker from Canberra, Dr Carolyn Bull, from the National Security College at the Australian National University. We are pleased to be hosting this event in partnership with the Curtin University Security and Strategic Studies, and International Relations Programs.  

A cash bar will be available for attendees to purchase drinks.

The Australian Institute of International Affairs for WA

The Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) is an independent, non-profit organisation seeking to promote interest in and understanding of international affairs in Australia.

The WA Branch of the AIIA was founded in 1947 by Professor Fred Alexander of the University of WA, who became its first President. Like the earlier established branches in the other Australian states, the WA Branch was modelled on the British Royal Institute of International Affairs, based at Chatham House in London.

The WA Branch has maintained a steady membership, including many prominent West Australian and national leaders. Successive State Governors have served as the Branch's Official Visitor. The aim of the institute is to be an independent and non-political body that facilitates and encourages the study and debate of international questions.

Membership fees includes a subscription to The Australian Journal of International Affairs as well as two tickets at the member price to each of our our monthly meetings where you will learn about developments in international affairs of concern to the people of Western Australia. We rely on membership contributions and sponsorship of special events to keep our association running: we receive no core funding from government.
