Our research

At the RMIT Transnational Security Centre, we believe that research has the power to transform mindsets and generate new knowledge and ideas.

We also believe in empowering our students to propel this research.

In this section, we are delighted to share research which has been driven by our students on critical law enforcement themes.

Countering Transnational Terrorism

How can law enforcement strengthen efforts to prevent transnational terrorism? What is the responsibility of law enforcement agencies in countries where the threat of terrorism is low? What are the recommendations of emerging law enforcement leaders in relation to countering transnational terrorism?

This paper reflects the shared insights and recommendations of the 48th Asia Region Management Law Enforcement Program (ARLEMP).

Empowering Women in Customs

In August 2021, 58 emerging women Customs leaders from 11 countries in Asia and the Pacific joined the Container Control Programme - Women's Professional Development Programme.  The CCP-WPDP is a joint initiative of:

  • Australian Border Force
  • United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the World Customs Organization (WCO) Women's Network
  • RMIT University Transnational Security Centre

Upon graduating, 23 members of the CCP-WPDP collaborated to mobilise research to positively influence the future Customs landscape.  As a result of their team efforts, the participants authored seven articles which were published in the World Customs Journal. Edition 16, Volume 1. March 2022.
