7 Brigade Hybrid Warfare Symposium: Mr Peter Jennings

By Tom McDermott August 20, 2020

The Cove is proud to present the third of our series of videos from the 7 Brigade Hybrid Warfare Symposium.

In just twenty minutes, Mr Peter Jennings from ASPI lays out how to develop a counter-hybrid warfare strategy.  He starts in an interesting place ... by asking 'is it worth it'?

What do you think?  If you've watched Prof Mike Evans's video from the series, do you believe that Australia needs a counter-hybrid strategy?  Or should we be focussed on major combat operations?

If you're finding your interest piqued, you can read more on hybrid war in the modern context in this excellent article from War on the Rocks.
