can claim at tax time.
One of the most difficult challenges in post-conflict societies is the establishment of systems to replace the rule of the gun - in other words, the creation of effective policing capabilities.
In this presentation, Dr Tony Murney will reflect on his experiences as a United Nations policing advisor in Afghanistan and Somalia. Police development and reform provide the platform for a discussion designed to provide insights for policy analysts, tacticians and strategists, both past and future.
Before working with the UN, Tony Murney was a senior manager in the International Deployment Group of the Australian Federal Police. You can read his biography here.
Please join us for networking before the presentation in the ADC Mess from 1700 hours.
RUSIQ Evening Lecture
Tuesday, 31 October 2017, 1800, RUSI Hall Victoria Barracks
Subject: “The Charge at Beersheba and its context”
“For days the Charge was the talk of the camps and messes. The Australian Light Horse had galloped into history”
Every Australian recognises the image of the Australian Light Horseman, it is up there with cricket, koalas and beer! Is this accolade deserved?
This presentation will be delivered on 31 October, the 100th Anniversary of the famous charge by the 4th and 12th Light Horse at Beersheba in Palestine, a pivotal action on the road to Jerusalem.
No other action by Australians in the Middle East in WWI has caught the public imagination as has the Charge. Two feature films have been made about it.
The build up to this action and its aftermath will be examined as part of the Palestine Campaign of WWI
