Strategic Assessment, Quarter 3 2020

The purpose of this Strategic Assessment is to analyse the trends influencing decisions pertaining to Army’s force design, structure and posture. It focuses upon risks and possible responses to trends and circumstances. The Q2 Strategic Assessment introduced the themes of balancing jurisdiction and capability (as a result of Operation Bushfire Assist); an economic crisis (as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic); and an acceleration of strategic competition. This assessment contends that understanding the drivers of resilience is fundamental to understanding Army’s role in deterrence, as well as its relationship with other arms of government, when supporting federal and state responses to significant events.
