APCSS-ACSC Group PhotoTwenty-three Fellows from Australia’s Command and Staff College (ACSC) came to Hawaii this week to be part of the “APCSS-ACSC Joint Global Security Seminar.”  This five-day workshop held October 17-21 in Honolulu is co-hosted by the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies (APCSS), a U.S. Department of Defense regional center, and the Australian Command and Staff College.

The Fellows are as part of the ACSC’s Global Security Issues elective. The goals of the seminar are to gain a better understanding of the nature of post-Cold War power shifts in the international system; identify common approaches to dealing with traditional and transnational security challenges in the Asia-Pacific region; develop critical thinking and analytical skills; and understand capabilities, organizational structures and roles of the military forces in other nations.
