Counterterrorism Program

The years since 9/11 have witnessed increasing policymaker focus on the threats posed by terrorism and on possible means to counter those threats.

Counterterrorist efforts constitute an important subset of Australian strategic policy and the ASPI Counter-terrorism program was established in late 2015.

The CT Program aims to:

  • Explain the counter-terrorism environment, including policy, legislation, terrorist threat, cross-jurisdiction and international issues.
  • Provide counter-terrorism policy advice, alternatives and contestability

The program undertakes research across the spectrum of counter-terrorism topics, facilitates dialogue and discussion amongst stakeholders, and provides advice to government, community and industry stakeholders, with a particular focus on what can be done to counter terrorism.
