This monograph comprises the proceedings of a Maritime Strategic Issues Workshop hosted by the Chief of Naval Staff at HMAS Creswell in November 1992. The workshop was attended by academics and by naval officers and other government officials with an interest in maritime security developments. The objective was to assess tho implications for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) of the changes that have occurred in recent years in the global and regional strategic environment. 

Successive sessions of the workshop considered the impact of strategic change, changing naval roles, the RAN's contribution to regional security, current maritime strategic issues and the strategic role for the RAN as perceived by naval officers at different rank levels. The monograph highlights the importance of a military service being prepared to look ahead to anticipate the impact of strategic change on its roles and functions.
