Counter-terrorism Policy Centre
The years since 9/11 have witnessed increasing policymaker focus on the threats posed by terrorism and on possible means to counter those threats.
Counter-terrorist efforts constitute an important subset of Australian strategic policy and the ASPI Counter-terrorism Policy Centre (CTPC) was established in late 2015.
The Centre 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 CTPC 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.
CTPC analysts are frequently called on in the media to explain events and issues - a collection of their opinion pieces and interviews are collected here.
