This ASPI article argues that the national security conversation in Australia needs to mature and become more informed and that gender and diversity are essential parts of the discourse.


Mercedes Page, writing in the Strategist, notes the following:

  • Security and foreign policy discourse in Australia has regressed regarding gender and diversity.
  • Organizations, media, and individuals can improve gender and diversity representation in events, panels, publications, and social media.
  • Valuing diversity and different perspectives is crucial.
  • It's important to actively work to dismantle institutional and systemic barriers that hold women, people of colour, and other underrepresented groups back.
