Event description

Description

The security landscape is changing rapidly. Challenges to the US-led security order are advancing faster than anticipated. They are both old and new – from cyber security and foreign interference to transnational terrorism and weapons of mass destruction – posing multiple threats, increasing uncertainty, instability and risk. Meanwhile, concerns about the rise of China and America’s commitment to the Indo-Pacific are prompting new trading and defence arrangements.

How will nations, including Australia, navigate these challenges? What might the future security order look like?

Sitting at the nexus of international and domestic threats and opportunities, national security is at the heart of contemporary statecraft. The next generation of security policy specialists will need to respond rapidly and with sound judgement.

In this seminar, ANU National Security College academics and policy professionals will share their insights into the emerging security environment. College staff will also be on hand following the seminar to discuss the benefits of a career in national security.

Associate Professor Michael Clarke is an internationally recognised expert on the history and politics of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, People’s Republic of China, Chinese foreign policy in Central Asia, Central Asian geopolitics, and nuclear proliferation and non-proliferation. He has generated numerous academic publications across these fields of research including one sole-authored book, one co-authored book, five edited books, thirty-four peer reviewed journal articles, and fourteen book chapters. Dr Clarke also regularly provides expert media commentary on Uyghur/Xinjiang and Chinese foreign policy-related issues to national and international media and has published commentary with Foreign Policy, The Wall Street Journal, The National Interest, CNN, BBC News, South China Morning Post, and The Diplomat, amongst others.

Dr Michael Cohen has recently joined the College as a Senior Lecturer from Macquarie University, where he was the coordinator of the Bachelor of Security Studies program. His areas of expertise include deterrence, coercion, political leadership and security politics of the Indo-Pacific. Dr Cohen’s current research projects examine leaders and international conflict, nuclear proliferation and international conflict, extended deterrence, reputation and conflict on the Korean peninsula, and the challenges and opportunities facing the Australia-United States alliance. He was previously Assistant Professor at the University of Southern Denmark from 2012 to 2015; and in 2014 was a visiting scholar at the Arnold A. Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia University.
