Hypothetical: A tale of terrorism

The 11 September 2001 attacks hurled terrorism into the global mainstream media. Since then, Australia’s counter-terrorism narrative has developed, carving out a new national security landscape. Today, Australia’s domestic terrorist threat level is set as PROBABLE.

How has the Australian Government prepared us to deal with this threat and what have we given up to get here?

Join our expert panellists Professor John Blaxland (ANU Strategic and Defence Studies Centre); Dr Dominique Dalla-Pozza (ANU College of Law); Jacinta Carroll (National Security College); and moderator Professor Mark Kenny (Australian Studies Institute, National Press Club) as they confront a hypothetical domestic terrorist attack and explore the possible ramifications, anticipated reactions and the likely effects on the future of our society.
