E3 Revolving Doors, Corruption Gateways

Australia’s military industrial complex is expanding on a massive scale – and this started well before the recent AUKUS military pact with the US and UK.

How have governments laid the groundwork for this in the past few years?

What can we expect as the global weapons industry, hardwired for corruption, comes hunting for ever-greater profits?


Michelle Fahy, independent researcher and journalist, and Andrew Feinstein, Executive Director of Shadow World Investigations, lay it out for us.


Produced and presented by Zelda Grimshaw and the team at Wage Peace
