Publications 

Access insights about Australia and the region from writers across the national security community.

IFRS produces a range of quality publications aligned to either our Research program or our Thought Leadership program.
Our flagship Kokoda Papers provide high-quality analysis and reporting on areas of strategic interest. They are evidence based and contain recommendations for future action. Kokoda Papers are the product of a major multi-disciplinary research project involving contributions from government, industry and academic experts. Refer to our Current Projects page for information on our current areas of research interest.

Security Challenges and the Regionalist both provide space for thought leaders to present innovative ideas about future challenges facing Australia and the Indo-Pacific Region. The Regionalist is an online publication seeking contributions from our younger strategic thinkers (under 35’s) and management of this publication is overseen by members of our Future Strategic Leaders’ Committee. 
On occasion, IFRS may choose to publish papers written by IFRS Fellows or Research Committee members where the subject matter contributes to debate or discussion on topics of interest to IFRS members.
