The Defence Strategic Review 2023 (DSR-2023) comes at a time of increasing global tensions. Australia will shift from a ‘balanced’ to a ‘focused’ defence force, with the US alliance and private sector involvement being critical.


This article by the United States Studies Centre  (USSC) makes the following points:
  • DSR-2023 covers economic issues, including climate change resilience and national fuel security.
  • It is the most important review of Australia's strategic defence thinking since the 1980s.
  • One of the DSR's aims is deterrence by imposing a severe cost on any major power that might consider attacking Australia.
