Counter-terrorism 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.

Counter-terrorist 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.
