The Centre for International Maritime Security panel discusses the Defence White Paper 2016 in relation to Australia’s strategic interests.

Summary

Where can you go to help your troops understand the bigger picture to their role? Like why does a Defence Force, like the ADF, deploy to defence shores other than Australia's? The 2016 Defence White Paper (DWP16) articulates Australia's strategic outlook, capability overview and how, in the future, the Australian Government will utilise these to address the complex strategic security challenges ahead. Logically it also informs future force generation, capability acquisitions, doctrine and international engagements. Struggling for time to read it? The Runway team has got you covered and even provides a US insight into the policy. Listen to the Centre for International Maritime Security's 'Perspectives' podcast dedicated to an informative discussion on key areas of the defence policy. For example, the acquisitions, critical enabling infrastructure and services to sustain Defence and maximise the effectiveness of the joint force. Listen to the Centre for International Maritime Security panel deliberate over planned major capability acquisitions and the various international relationships that will shape Australia’s future security environment. What are the six key drivers that will shape development of Australia's security environment to 2035?
