Welcome to the Australian Journal of Defence and Strategic Studies, the new flagship publication of the Australian Defence Force.
We are pleased to launch this new publication as a positive way to support debate and discussion on the future defence and strategic concerns facing Australia and our region.
Defence - as an integrated organisation of both ADF and APS professionals - continuously needs to reflect on how we can best deliver on the mission given to us, to defend and serve the national interest. We must look for constructive approaches to navigate the rapidly changing and complicated environment ahead. To do this it is essential we stimulate and enhance our intellectual engagement with a range of complex problems and consider alternative approaches.
Through the Australian Journal of Defence and Strategic Studies, we are encouraging the sharing of thought-provoking ideas, original analysis and high-quality research that will help inform and frame deliberations on the defence and strategic challenges we may face in the future.
