Spooky Australian think-tank

The Institute for Regional Security is an Australian military-industrial think tank.

According to its own description, "the Institute’s mission is the promotion of the peace, stability and prosperity of the peoples of the Indo-Pacific region through policy research, policy advice and advocacy, international dialogues, and the professional development of policy-makers."'[1] The "promotion of peace" seems to be pushing for increased armaments spending, more military alliances and a bigger security apparatus.

The Institute works with the Atlantic Council, among other things in the Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge. In 2019 the Institute managed the exercise, practicing a disruption of Australian oil refining infrastructure.[1][2] In August 2019, the Institute hosted a speech by NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg.[3]


The members are connected to the security industry. For example, Ross Babbage was previous Head of Strategic Analysis in the Office of National Assessments, David Irvine is a former ASIO Director-General of Security, while Zeke Solomon is member of the deep state Global Panel Foundation.

The institute runs a grooming program, the Future Strategic Leaders Program (FSLP), where "early-career professionals from Government, the military, police and intelligence agencies, and industry are selected into a program that provides opportunities for individual development, and contribution to the work of the Institute."

It also has a Women in National Security (WiNS) program "designed to encourage the recruitment, retention and levels of inclusion of women in the national security community."
