Women in International Security: Theory & Practice (2018-2019)

Our flagship, 10-part seminar series was run over four semesters at the Australian National University (ANU) in 2018-19, sponsored by the ANU Gender Institute and the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre.


These WIIS events took three forms: (1) research seminars presenting ongoing research on international security issues; (2) policy dialogues with policy-makers on contemporary security themes; and (3) postgraduate career opportunity and development workshops. Speakers included distinguished women scholars from ANU and other universities; leading women policy-makers and politicians; fast-rising women in different sectors of the Australian armed forces; and successful women at different career stages in the private security sector and in government agencies dealing with defence, foreign policy and strategy.
