security & defence PLUS
Where Academia and Statecraft Intersect
WHO IS SECURITY & DEFENCE PLUS?
The PLuS Alliance is a longstanding partnership between three universities – in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia – providing support and innovation to help solve global challenges. The Security & Defence PLuS initiative of the PLuS Alliance expands upon this partnership, allowing the Alliance to help advance and support statecraft, research, and policy in the spirit of the AUKUS partnership.
Leveraging Scholarship to Enhance Policy
Negotiated between Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, the AUKUS partnership strengthens the ability of each country to support mutual security and defense interests by promoting deeper information and technology sharing in nuclear-powered submarines and other advanced capabilities. Security and Defence PLuS aims to enhance the statecraft of the countries within the AUKUS Partnership by utilizing each university’s unique approach to academic scholarship and research.
