Aligning Priorities in the Indo-Pacific with Deputy Prime Minister Richard Marles

The CSIS Australia Chair cordially invites you to “The U.S.-Australia Alliance: Aligning Priorities in the Indo-Pacific with Deputy Prime Minister Richard Marles.”

Over the last several years, Australia has emerged as a critical ally and partner of the United States in the Indo-Pacific region. In late May of this year, Australia held federal elections, which resulted in a Labor-led government for the first time in nine years. This new Australian government confronts a significantly degraded regional security environment and will face consequential defense policy decisions.

Please join the CSIS Australia Chair on July 11 at 3 p.m. EDT as Deputy Prime Minister Richard Marles MP offers his insights into Australia’s view of the evolving security landscape in the Indo-Pacific, the U.S.-Australia alliance, and the new Australian government’s approach to defense and national security. This discussion will be moderated by Charles Edel, CSIS Australia Chair and Senior Advisor.

CSIS’s Australia Chair is dedicated to increasing understanding between the United States and Australia and serves as an independent platform to pursue policy changes that strengthen bilateral ties. The Chair is endowed through the generosity of Pratt Industries.

Biden’s Border Promise [Video]

In December 2020, President-elect Joe Biden promised to put “guardrails” in place as he reversed his predecessor’s border policies, so that there wouldn’t be a crisis with “2 million” people at the border. But he removed more guardrails than he dismantled and, after apprehensions set a new record in 2021, apprehensions surpassed the 2 million Biden vowed would never happen in FY 2022 .

Iranian Political Activist on Iran TV: We Live in a Totalitarian Regime Like North Korea [Video]

Iranian political activist Saeed Shariati said in a September 20, 2022 show on Channel 4 (Iran) that Iran is a totalitarian regime and that its officials and security forces must reconsider their actions in the crackdown against the protesters following the death of Mahsa Amini (see MEMRI TV Clips No. 9837 and No. 9833). He compared Iran to North Korea and said that it is not a democracy because the people do not have the ability to vote the rulers out of power. In addition, he said that none of the 290 members of Iran’s Majles represent him or the protesters who are being beaten in the streets. It is noteworthy that Jalil Mohebbi, who is a religious scholar and a member of the Scientific Board of the Majles Research Center, appeared on the show alongside Shariati.

Report Launch: Software-Defined Warfare [Video]

A forthcoming report by the inaugural Chief Technology Officer of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and former Director of the Department of Defense's (DOD) Joint AI Center discusses key concerns and recommendations onredesigning the DOD for next generation war fighting systems.In future crises and conflicts, the side that adapts faster and demonstrates the greatest agility—to include rapidly updating and promulgating fielded software and AI models—is likely to gain a significant competitive advantage. For the United States to retain its dominant position in the future—which is not a guaranteed outcome—the DOD needs a new design and architecture that will allow it to be far more flexible, scale on demand, and adapt dynamically to changing conditions. The only way for the DOD to stay competitive in this new warfighting environment is to ensure that it uses the most potent weapon available: technology, and more specifically, software.Join CSIS for a panel discussion on software-defined warfare with Nand Mulchandani, CTO of the CIA, and Lt. General (Ret.) John N.T. “Jack” Shanahan, former Director of the DOD's Joint AI Center.This event is made possible by general support to CSIS.---------------------------------------------A nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the top national security think tank in the world.
