ANU National Security College presents

Women in National Security



24th October 2018


Hyatt Hotel, Canberra


$1050 - $1200

Power, security and change

Following the success of the first conference in 2017, this year’s forum takes the conversation further, with leading policy practitioners and academics exploring a spectrum of contemporary security issues defined by power and change: from data to deterrence, new technologies to counter-terrorism, Indo-Pacific strategy to the future of power.

The conference bridges scholarship, policy, business, and the wider community, combining the National Security College’s commitment to training and education with enriching Australia’s policy debate. So it is suited equally to participants from government, universities, industry, and civil society.

It is worth emphasising that WiNS is not just for women participants. There is something here for any security practitioner interested in having assumptions challenged, whether on regional security, defence, diplomacy, policing, violent extremism, artificial intelligence or cyber security. A special focus will also be given to understanding the future security workforce. The Women Peace and Security Agenda will also be part of discussions.

The two-day program involves leading Australian and international experts, influencers, policy makers and security practitioners.

The conference will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, 24 and 25 October at the Hyatt Hotel in Canberra, with a conference dinner at the National Gallery of Australia on 24 October.

The conference is organised in partnership with the Australian Government, the ANU National Security College and Thales Group.
