18 years and counting: Australian counterterrorism, threats and responses

Counter-terrorism Terrorism Jihad Australia
Description

This report provides a general overview of what successive Australian governments have done since 9/11 to counter the threat posed by Salafi-jihadi to the maintenance of international peace and security, to regional security and to domestic security.

Since 2014, the threat level in Australia has been assessed as ‘Probable’, which means that credible intelligence exists to indicate that individuals or groups continue to possess the intent and capability to conduct a terrorist attack in Australia. Both Melbourne and Sydney have featured in jihadist videos and publications.

This report incorporates some suggestions on how to move forward as we seek to address the evolving threat posed by Salafi-jihadis in the post-‘caliphate’ period.
