Fires in the sky and the ground. Tensions in the Middle-East while Australia burns.

In the first Policy, Guns & Money for 2020, we examine two of the big events that are impacting the world currently; the US killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani and the terrible bushfires currently ravaging Australia.

Mark Crosweller the former head of the National Resilience Taskforce and former Director-General of Emergency Management Australia and Dr Paul Barnes, head of the Risk and Resilience program here at ASPI.
