Statecraft and Intelligence Program

Analysing the role of intelligence in the conduct of statecraft.

The Statecraft & Intelligence program focuses on the increasingly important role of intelligence in the conduct of statecraft, particularly in an Australian context.

Research topics include intelligence history; the impact of popular culture on public understanding (and misunderstanding) of intelligence matters; emergent and emerging issues and challenges facing intelligence services internationally and in Australia; international comparisons and lessons; and the place of intelligence agencies (and their oversight and organisation) in democracies.

The program aims to:

  • Conduct and publish valued research on intelligence matters
  • Prepare suitable policy inputs on intelligence issues
  • Conduct a range of activities to increase the understanding of intelligence among the Australian community (and to encourage development of national expertise in intelligence)
