Global cities and human security: Melbourne
Summary

This project develops a nuclear attack scenario for the city of Melbourne, mapping such an event from the potential sources of the weapon and avenues for its entry into the city, through the immediate blast and consequence management, to the long term local, national and international impacts of such an attack. At each level it explores the social, political, and economic facets of the scenario, with a particular focus on uncovering and exploring the city’s key vulnerabilities and sources of resilience in the face of a WMD attack.
