"Information Warfare: Applying Research and Experimentation to Strategy"
In an Australian context for example, as Australia has committed (2017) to procure its new submarine fleet from France, a critical statement arises: "The Commanders of the last generation of submarines Australia is developing with France will not be born for another 25 year." This important statement indicates the need to look at education with a different lens, from the future. It suggests that new systems of thinking and educating will be indispensable, as new technologies will create space in which the human may - or may not - remain in the loop.

Education: Understanding Ethics, Information Warfare and Knowledge Transfer…the key to Knowledge Sovereignty
A strong advocate of the importance of ethics and knowledge transfer, Professor Bogais teaches in both civilian and military institutions. He creates (or adapts) pilot programmes to explore and test the education of the future. Dr Bogais brings into the classroom the material acquired in his field work to give students / participants real time perspectives.
As a bilingual (French/English) psycho-sociologist and conflict specialist, Professor Bogais is well-placed to advise, mentor and teach in these complex areas.

As climate change moves forward, landscapes are being reshaped in the region and so are resources. For governments, citizens resilience and positive pathways to development (e.g. sustainable practices with water, food and ecosystems, use of renewable energy sources, shared management of resources, design of disaster resilient cities) could be a feature that decreases the likelihood of violence and conflict within and between countries in the region. Integrating environmental security through a hard security lens allows modelling of future violence and conflict and the decision making-taking needed to address crisis, as we march towards environmental tipping points in 2050.
Questions we seek to address:
- How do we model and strategise transnational improvements to resource sharing?
- What is the role of regional organisations in setting up mechanisms to look at disaster relief (present and future) beyond state boundaries?
- How do we create new methods of disaster resilience and natural disaster management to prevent terrorist groups gaining control of aid (for example, GAM after the 2007 Tsunami in Indonesia).
- How do we model and negotiate the creation of a new regional integrated civil-military disaster intervention force? Design and experimentation. Ethics protocols.
- How do we understand the role of information warfare in environmental security?
