Centre for International Security Studies
Analysing international security challenges facing Australia, Asia and the world.
In July 2006 the Centre for International Security Studies (CISS) was established along with the Michael Hintze Chair of International Security to produce innovative research and education programs on the enduring and emerging security challenges facing Australia, the Asia Pacific, and the world.
CISS is organized into four research and teaching areas: biosecurity, geosecurity, infosecurity and global security. In a rapidly changing security environment we expect the unexpected and seek to apply our expertise to unforeseen global events, natural and unnatural disasters, and shocks to international security as they arise. Our research informs and solicits an active engagement with the policy community and public at large.
CISS associate, Adjunct Associate Professor Jonathan Bogais explores the complexity of the process to civilianize Myanmar - and the transition from social control to social contract - in his latest essay published by the Middle East Institute (Middle East/Asia Project) in Washington DC.
Associate Professor Adam Kamradt-Scott recently wrote an op-ed for The Australian in response to a commentary piece arguing that various medical and humanitarian groups had exaggerated the danger the Ebola crisis in West Africa posed to Australia. Click to read the full article via The Australian.
Associate Professor Jingdong Yuan discusses the recent North Korean nuclear test on Beijing's policy in a new opinion piece for the Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA). Click to read.
ESRC GLOBAL HEALTH SECURITY WORKSHOP: 'Examining the role of the private sector in health-related humanitarian response'
The entry of for-profit organisations in health-related humanitarian response has been a relatively new phenomenon, but the move towards what some have described as the “privatization” of humanitarian response has been observed across multiple humanitarian-related areas and activities, particularly in the areas of medical aid, surveillance and logistics.
