Positioning for strategic recovery post-COVID-19

The National Security College is a joint initiative of the Commonwealth Government and The Australian National University.

Session Overview

Australia faces a deeply uncertain future. Post-COVID-19, we will need to navigate a very difficult fiscal environment – domestically and further afield; with shifts in regional power dynamics; and the potential for failed states in the region. This has the potential to exacerbate existing national security issues, and create new ones.

Hear from George Megalogenis, Dr Anthea Roberts, Alastair MacGibbon and Rory Medcalf on how we might navigate the choppy waters ahead. Gain fresh perspectives and a deeper understanding of how Australia can leverage its middle power status to help facilitate stability in the region and security at home, and how everyone in the broad national security community will need to play a role.  

Participants will leave the program with:

  1. An improved understanding of the strategic challenges facing Australia and the Indo-Pacific region as a result of COVID-19, particularly as it pertains to national security; and
  2. Ideas on how to best position for strategic recovery.


Who should attend:

National security practitioners, thinkers and decision makers in government, industry and academia.
