    Nuclear Policy, Defence Funding and more:
    Summer 2013 edition now online

    The Summer 2013 edition of Security Challenges contains topical articles on the Australian nuclear policy, defence policy choices and funding, and maritime security in the Southwest Pacific.

    John Carlson examines whether Australia could strengthen the non-proliferation regime by creating an international uranium enrichment facility, Ramesh Thakur updates us on the recently released State of Play report on non-proliferation and disarmament, while Wayne Reynolds examines the potential for nuclear-powered submarines to one day feature as part of Australia's forces.

    Paul Dibb and Richard Brabin-Smith examine defence policy choices for the new government, and Andrew Carr and Peter Dean critique the use of the '2% of GDP' goal for defence funding.

    In addition, Sam Bateman and Quentin Hanich examine maritime security issues in Australia's 'inner arc'.

    Full text PDFs of the articles in this edition are now available online - see the table of contents of this edition. Hard copies can be ordered here.

    The Foundation's current major research projects are:

    Maritime Domain Awareness Study 

    This study seeks to characterise the trends influencing Australia's maritime security environment as well as  indentifying emerging threats and challenges - looking forward to 2030.  It also aims to suggest possible policy and capability responses.

    Protecting Australia's Maritime Border: Towards 2030

    This study, undertaken at the request of Australian Customs and Border Protection, aims to characterise the trends and threats which are likely to  challenge the integrity of Australia's maritime borders looking ahead to 2030.

    Global Resource Security Project

    The Kokoda Foundation will undertake research into the Security implications of future global resource challenges.  High-level environmental, social and economic systems analysis highlights the risk in the medium term of growing shortages of energy, food, water and other resources.  Such shortages will pose grave threats to national international security

    The Kokoda Fondation Board has several other major research projects under active consideration.
