The Institute for Defence and Security Studies NSW

Founded as the United Service Institution of New South Wales in 1888, the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies NSW today is one of seven self-governing constituent bodies of the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies of Australia.

The Institute's office and the Ursula Davidson Library have relocated to the Centenary Extension of the Anzac Memorial in Hyde Park South, Liverpool Street - very close to Museum Railway Station, to buses that run along Elizabeth Street and to car parking stations. Members are encouraged to come and visit us once the Centenary Extension is officially opened on 11 November 2018.

The aim of the Institute is to promote informed debate on, and to improve public awareness and understanding of, defence and national security. To this end, the Institute:

  • contributes to the national debate on defence and security policy;
  • publishes a highly-respected professional journal;
  • arranges regular lectures and occasional seminars on military history, defence and security issues;
  • organises visits to defence and security establishments;
  • operates a public library, specialising in defence and security literature dating from the early 19th century to the current day; and
  • conducts social and networking functions for members.

This website provides information on forthcoming lectures, seminars, visits and other functions; and provides the selected contents of past and current issues of our quarterly journal, United Service. Members are also able to read on-line recently published papers and policy submissions; and browse lists, of books recently acquired by the library.
