The proliferation of threats to national security and the ambiguous nature of these threats make intelligence – including its organisation, products, processes and systems – a key enabler of national security decision-making. Yet, intelligence remains the most commonly misunderstood aspect of national security. What is the role of intelligence in contemporary society, and how should this role evolve into the future to meet emerging national security challenges?
Congress attendees will develop a deeper understanding of intelligence through learning, discussion and debate around strategic aspects of intelligence practice and the role of intelligence in contemporary Australian society. The Congress program addresses different domains such as national intelligence, defence intelligence, counterintelligence and economic intelligence. Legal and ethical facets will also be explored. The program aims expose a broad cross-section of the intelligence discipline and cast forward to some of the future challenges. As such, current practitioners in the field are encouraged to attend. Participants will workshop issues with colleagues from across government, academia and industry, as well as some of Australia's leading strategic thinkers and decision makers in examining the future intelligence challenges.
Who should attend The Young Strategic Leaders’ Congress should be a priority for young professionals employed in all parts of the Australian national security community and for graduates who aspire to work within the Australian national security community. The Congress program has been designed from the outset to build the strategic, analytical, leadership and networking skills of young strategic professionals.
