Sub-Imperial Power, with Clinton Fernandes

Sub-Imperial Power, with Clinton Fernandes

How does Australia operate in the world? And why? In this closely evidenced, original account, former Australian Army intelligence analyst Clinton Fernandes categorically debunks Australia’s greatest myth: that of its own independence.

Clinton Fernandes is Professor of International and Political Studies at the University of New South Wales. He has published on the relationship between science, diplomacy and international law, intelligence operations in foreign policy, the political and regulatory implications of new technology and Australia’s external relations more generally. His research in the Future Operations Research Group at UNSW analyses the operational environment, and the threats, risks and opportunities that military forces will face, in the 2030-50 timeframe.

Clinton spoke at Per Capita’s monthly John Cain luncheon on 19 October, 2022.
