A closed-door briefing on Kidnapping and Beheading as an Asymmetric Tactic of War: Security Implications for Australia, the EU and beyond.
The recent kidnappings and beheadings of foreigners by ISIS are asymmetric tactics of war that penetrate our moral, mental and physical boundaries of conflict. An event involving an Australian would have inspirational value for home-grown terrorism and present series political consequences for Australia’s foreign policy. Given Australia’s active participation in areas influenced by this group, there is a risk that an Australian national could become a victim.
With a high number of Australian nationals deployed in areas under the influence of these tactics and numerous programs funded by the Australian
government, care must be taken to ensure moral, ethical and legal responsibilities are discharged and programs and organisations are aligned for the best outcomes.
Proudly presented by the EU Centre at RMIT in conjunction with Curtin University and Strategic Flashlight.
- Mr Jason Thomas, Private security consultant and PhD candidate at Curtin University
- Mr Gavin Briggs, lecturer in International Relations and National Security at Curtin University.
