Nov 30, 2023

In this special episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, recorded at Indo Pacific 2023, host Steve Kuper and Jennifer Parker – director, defence policy, at National Security College – discuss her recent report for ASPI, titled, An Australian maritime strategy: resourcing the Royal Australian Navy.

The pair begin by discussing the genesis of the report and Australia’s need to develop a detailed and considered maritime strategy, as part of delivering the next-generation Royal Australian Navy surface fleet. 
They then discuss the implications a maritime strategy would have on the government’s independent review into the make-up of the surface fleet and how it directly influences the size and structure of the fleet. 
Finally, the pair discuss a potential force structure for the Royal Australian Navy’s surface fleet based on the latest revelations at Indo Pacific 2023.
