Roundtable with Dr Gregory Treverton, Chairman of the United States’ National Intelligence Council
On Wednesday 22 June, the National Security College hosted the Chairman of the United States’ National Intelligence Council, Dr Gregory Treverton, for an exclusive discussion on future global trends and the strategic outlook for the United States and Australia.
Dr Treverton was welcomed to the Australian National University by the Chancellor, Professor The Hon Gareth Evans AC QC, and the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Brian Schmidt AC FRS FAA.
The roundtable follows on the College’s successful high level discussion with Mr James Clapper AO, United States Director of National Intelligence, on 17 March.
The thought-provoking discussion with Dr Treverton was chaired by the Head of College, Professor Rory Medcalf, and involved senior Australian national security practitioners past and present, as well as some of the College’s key partners from academia.
The robust and dynamic exchange canvassed a wide range of issues and trends – including the drivers of major power cooperation and competition, future science and technology trends, and the global economic outlook.
The College is pleased to be playing an ongoing role supporting in depth analysis of critical national security issues with national security practitioners and non-government experts, and boosting Australia’s linkages with key international partners through high level dialogues on practical policy issues.
