According to retired Major General Jim Molan, dramatic changes in the global security climate necessitate the development and implementation of a tailor-made strategy for Australian defence.
The now-senator joins host Phil Tarrant on this episode of the Defence Connect podcast to dissect his recent paper on national security strategy for the ANU’s Centre of Gravity initiative.
Senator Molan explains how current Australian policy falls short, why an established system would make the nation a more self-sufficient and therefore better ally, and who would be responsible for executing such a strategy.
