Democratic Responses to Foreign Interference: Learning from Australia’s Experience

The CSIS Australia Chair cordially invites you to “Democratic Responses to Foreign Interference: Learning from Australia’s Experience.”

Thursday, August 18, 2022 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm EST
Friday, August 19, 2022 7:00 am – 8:00 am AEST

Over the past decade, the Chinese Communist Party has ramped up its influence campaign in democratic societies around the world. Nowhere has this been more keenly felt than in Australia, where Beijing’s efforts to silence critics of China and amplify the voices of individuals and institutions supporting China, have been felt across the political, business, academic and civic spectrum.

To understand how Australia has responded to this challenge, and to discuss lessons that the experience might hold for other democracies, please join the CSIS Australia Chair Charles Edel on August 18 at 5 p.m. EDT (August 19, 7 a.m AEST) for a discussion with three of Australia’s leading experts on foreign interference—John Fitzgerald, John Garnaut, and Sophie McNeill, who will offer their insights on the responses of the Australian government, civil society, and higher education.

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.

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.
