Safeguarding Australia 2015
Safeguarding Australia is the premier Australian national security summit. It brings high profile speakers from government and the private sector to discuss contemporary national security challenges and responses.
The 2015 conference theme is Global Violent Extremism and addresses the re-emergence of violent and radical ideologies as a major international security threat. The theme bridges external threats, such as the Islamic State, and their links to domestic threats, such as sectarian tensions within communities, the return of foreign fighters and internationally-inspired terror plots.
