According to the terms of reference Defence Security Review is now required to ensure that Defence has the right capabilities that are postured to meet the growing strategic challenges that Australia and its partner countries will face in the world in coming years.

The remit of the Defence Strategic Review is to consider the priority of investment in Defence capabilities and assess the Australian Defence Force’s structure, posture and preparedness in order to optimise Defence capability and posture to meet the nation’s security challenges over the period 2023-24 to 2032-33 and beyond.

We are running a series of articles that focus on the key issues of the Defence Strategic Review (DSR) which is headed by Sir Angus Houston and the Hon. Stephen Smith. Our articles put a lens on the changing world order – from uni-polar to multi-polar; the risks of our strategic relationships with the USA in particular and with AUKUS, and the ongoing fallacy that China is a threat to Australia.
