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.
