In 2019–20, ASPI’s core work in the strategic policy field focused on broad strategic policy settings, the global and regional security environments, the operational needs of the Australian Defence Force (ADF), the development of defence capabilities, and issues associated with defence funding and budgets. Over the years, ASPI has made nationally recognised contributions in all those fields. They remain central to our work agenda even as we expand to embrace new programs and responsibilities.

Research staff conduct their work in program areas organised under two themes:
  Defence, Strategy and National Security
  International Cyber Policy Centre (ICPC).
