Australia’s National Security Laws: 2018 in Review

2018 was a significant year for the development of Australia’s national security laws. The Commonwealth Parliament made changes to significant areas of the laws, including updating espionage offences, establishing the Foreign Influence Transparency Scheme and changing how intelligence services and the police can lawfully access telecommunications data.  

2018 was also notable for the developments in the process by which these changes were made and for the handing down of reviews by the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security.
