|Spooky Australian think-tank|
The Institute for Regional Security is an Australian military-industrial think tank.
According to its own description, "the Institute’s mission is the promotion of the peace, stability and prosperity of the peoples of the Indo-Pacific region through policy research, policy advice and advocacy, international dialogues, and the professional development of policy-makers."' The "promotion of peace" seems to be pushing for increased armaments spending, more military alliances and a bigger security apparatus.
The Institute works with the Atlantic Council, among other things in the Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge. In 2019 the Institute managed the exercise, practicing a disruption of Australian oil refining infrastructure. In August 2019, the Institute hosted a speech by NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg.
The members are connected to the security industry. For example, Ross Babbage was previous Head of Strategic Analysis in the Office of National Assessments, David Irvine is a former ASIO Director-General of Security, while Zeke Solomon is member of the deep state Global Panel Foundation.
The institute runs a grooming program, the Future Strategic Leaders Program (FSLP), where "early-career professionals from Government, the military, police and intelligence agencies, and industry are selected into a program that provides opportunities for individual development, and contribution to the work of the Institute."
It also has a Women in National Security (WiNS) program "designed to encourage the recruitment, retention and levels of inclusion of women in the national security community."
