Funder: Australian Department of Trade and Foreign Affairs
PI: Professor Rory Cormac; Co-investigator: Professor Andrew Mumford
Duration: October 2022-July 2023

This project, in collaboration with the Australian National University, aims to distil mechanisms states use to influence others, from propaganda to paramilitary activity.

It pays particular attention to scales of secrecy, visibility and acknowledgement, what each can achieve, and how observers can assess success. 

The project is supported by Research Fellows Thomas Eason and Katie Bayford
