About the Institute
The Defence and Security Institute (DSI) is an initiative by The University of Western Australia (UWA). Hosted at UWA the DSI unifies and focusses UWA’s expertise in defence and security research, engagement, and education.
Defence and security provides the foundation of our nation’s sovereignty. In an era of rapidly evolving geopolitics this critical area of national policy sits at the forefront of government and public debates.
The DSI plays a central role in helping to develop Australia’s sovereign defence capabilities in WA by working with local, state and federal governments, industry and business, research institutions and the community to help generate solutions towards a peaceful, prosperous and secure Australia and Indo-Pacific region.
