Policy, Guns and Money: Covid-19 and conflict, Pacific ICT and Defence

In this episode, ASPI’s Lisa Sharland talks to International Crisis Group UN Director Richard Gowan about the centre’s recent report, Covid-19 and conflict: seven trends to watch.

Earlier this year, Bart Hogeveen of ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre released a report titled ICT for development in the Pacific islands. Bart speaks with ICPC colleague Louisa Bochner about the report and his work on assessing e-governance facilities in the Pacific.

Finally, the cyber centre’s Tom Uren and ASPI’s defence, strategy and national security director, Michael Shoebridge, discuss how Australia’s Defence Department has adapted to changing roles and whether the organisation’s structure and processes are fit for purpose.
