The Intelligence Community in Australia - PICT814

This unit examines the role of intelligence in the Australian national security environment and delves deeply into the history of the Australian Intelligence Community and how it developed from Federation until today. Intelligence organisations, their functions and interrelationships are closely examined and assessed from the perspective of interoperability and alignment. Historical case studies are used to explore more deeply the complexities of modern intelligence collection, analysis, dissemination and reform in the Australian context. Australia's position and role within the '5-Eyes Intelligence Community' is a consistent theme throughout the course from its inception at the end of World War II. Reform and accountability are key components of a holistic review of the Australian Intelligence Community.
