    Interested in joining the Future Strategic Leaders' Program Committee?
    The Institute for Regional Security (IFRS) is calling for expressions of interest to join the 2018/19 Future Strategic Leaders' Program (FSLP) Committee.

    About us
    The FSLP Committee is a group of young professionals, including students, engaged and/or working in the national security community with a strong interest in developing the professional skills of the next generation of Australia’s national security leaders. The role of the FSLP Committee is to assist in the planning and organising of events in support of IFRS. The program consists of seminars, retreat-style congresses, social networking functions, careers advice, and other special events, with opportunities to engage with senior Australian national security officials and leaders.

    Our search
    We are looking for a number of volunteers, from big thinkers with ideas for the future, to those who are interested in actioning things, managing events and implementing ideas. Time commitments can vary from 1-10 hours a week depending on the portfolio and the time of year.
    We currently have availabilities in the following subcommittees:
    • Outreach sub-committee
    • Research and Ideas sub-committee 
    • Events & Networking sub-committee

    For more information on roles and sub-committees, click here.

    Our expectations
    Sub-committee members – including sub-committee leads – will need to attend meetings of their particular sub-committee, and executive meetings where relevant, and assist in the organising of events in their portfolio as required. They will also be expected to regularly attend FSLP and IFRS events more broadly, assist with other sub-committees' work when necessary, engage and network with other members of the FSLP committee, and represent the IFRS in a professional manner at all events.

    So you know
    Once you have submitted your expression of interest, it will be screened for shortlisting by current committee members. Shortlisted nominees will then be invited to attend an FSLP Meet & Greet (date/time to be advised). The final result will be advised in the days following the Meet & Greet.

    We are committed to fostering an inclusive committee of volunteers that reflects the diverse nature of the Australian community and supports new ideas and ways of thinking . We encourage people of all gender identities and religions and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds not only to attend and participate in our events, but also apply to join the FLSP committee when vacancies arise.

    It is also expected that successful candidates will take out standard membership with IFRS.

    Additionally, please submit the following:
    1.) A half page expression of interest outlining:

    This paper discusses Australia’s position on the 2016 arbitral ruling in the South China Sea Arbitration (The Republic of the Philippines v The People’s Republic of China). Australia’s Foreign Minister has stated that this was an important test-case for how the East Asian region can manage disputes peacefully.

    The paper will explain Australia’s interests in the South China Sea, followed by an examination of the legal ruling alongside Australia’s, China’s and the Philippines’ responses. It will make reference to the issue of emerging global powers in the East Asian region and argue that the arbitration should become a precedent for regional dispute resolution based on nation-state participation in a rules-based
    global order.

    In November 2011 President Barack Obama addressed the Australian Parliament and proclaimed he had ‘made a deliberate and strategic decision...the United States will play a larger and long-term role in shaping this region and its future, by upholding core principles and in close partnership with our allies and friends’. 

    As it has been five years since the US Pivot/Rebalance to Asia was announced, we have issued a special edition to commemorate and assess this period. This special edition asked contributors to assess the significance and progress of the rebalance from the perspective of the United States, Japan, Singapore, China and Australia. It presents a variety of views about the rebalance’s impact and significance, contributing to both scholarly and policy debates.

    The issue was launched at the Hedley Bull Building Atrium at the Australian National University on Wednesday 16 November.

    Security Challenges aims to be Australia’s foremost journal on strategic policy, military and defence strategy. It is a fully peer reviewed journal that aims to produce high quality scholarship accessible to and engaging with policy makers and the concerns of the policy communities in Australia and across the Asia Pacific.
