Sectarianism: the threat to Australia

Neither the presence of Australian foreign fighters overseas nor sectarian related security concerns in Australia are entirely new to this country.

The end of the ‘line’, the dawn of the ‘network’: Future directions for national security risk management

For the past few centuries, security has been all about drawing lines: lines between nations (‘us’ and ‘them’), between public and private, between government departments, between security tasks, between time horizons, between scientific disciplines, etc.
