Understanding the Past, Present & Future of Global Conflict
The study of war allows us to learn from the past, understand the present and prepare for the future. At UNSW Canberra at ADFA we take a multidisciplinary approach to war studies, harnessing the expertise of historians, ethicists, military tacticians and legal scholars.
Our relationship with the Australian Defence Force positions us as a natural leader in this field. We are interested in the lessons learnt from our country’s conflicts and we seek to understand the evolving military landscape our servicemen and women are likely to face.
We are also home to the largest academic defence library in the Southern Hemisphere – an invaluable resource for our researchers working across Conflict & Society, Literature & Media and International Ethics.
