Europe and Australia are connected in many ways. As liberal democratic societies, they share a common normative foundation of values that set the parameters for what the state may or may not do.
Based on that background, in September 2017 a delegation from Australia composed of practitioners, policymakers and academics travelled to Germany and Belgium to participate in the 3rd Australian Strategic Policy Institute – Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Australia–Europe Counterterrorism Dialogue, entitled ‘Transforming the New Threat Landscape’.
A key part of this process of sharing expertise and generating ideas in a safe space of trust, openness and mutual respect is therefore to share the dialogue recommendations with a wider audience—which is the objective of this publication.
