Australian Defence Force Transformation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

As Australia's role in the Asia-Pacific security environment becomes more complex, there is a corrective need for its defense forces to evolve. This case employs the recent transformation of the Australian Defense Force (ADF) to validate what is called a ‘significant revolution in Military Affairs.’ The ADF has embraced change, primarily through its Future Warfare Concept (FWC) and the 2009 defense white paper of the Rudd Labor government.
