The Royal United Services Institute of NSW Security Dialogue 2013 

The Royal United Services Institute of New South Wales 2013 Security Dialogue held on 26 February 2013 was a great success. 150 members and guests saw the conference opened by Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir CVO, AC, Administrator of the Commonwealth of Australia, then witnessed the insight of those best placed to understand the nations of Oceania and their security needs at the National Maritime Museum theatrette, one of the best such venues in Sydney.

The views expressed were refreshingly frank, and for this an election year, remarkably free of political nuance.
