Research Project "A Conceptual History of National Security in Australia" presents
its Kick-Off Workshop: "Concepts of national security: Australian and international perspectives"
Together with Carolyn Holbrook und David Lowe, Deakin University Melbourne, Eckart Conze successfully raised a research project at the Australian Research Council addressing the field of "A Conceptual History of National Security in Australia".
"This workshop seeks to contextualise concepts of national security in different temporal and geographical contexts, with an emphasis on its significance in Australia. It explores the history of national security as an idea."
And raises the following questions: "How has the idea of national security evolved over the last 100 years? Who tells us how to feel secure/insecure and how has this changed over time? And how do Australian perspectives, contemporary and historical, compare with other conceptions and architectures of national security?"
