Since retiring from his role as Chief of Army, LT GEN Leahy was the foudation Director of the University of Canberra National Security Institute and has established a distinguished reputation as an Academic, and occasionally contributes to the national commentary on Defence and National Security.
LT GEN Leahy has titled his presentation "The Battle for Australia" - and given that this presentation follows shortly after release of the Defence Strategic Review and the Budget, this promises to be a salient and important opportunity to examine some of the most consequential National Security and Defence Policy decisions in recent history.
