Nuclear Boot Camp alumna Christine Leah authored "US Extended Nuclear Deterrence and Nuclear Order: An Australian Perspective" in the Summer 2012 edition of Asian Security (Volume 8, Number 2, pp. 93-114). Leah is a Doctoral Candidate in Strategic and Defence Studies at the Australian National University and participated in the first NPIHP Nuclear Boot Camp held in Allumiere, Italy in May of 2011.

In the article, Leah explores the history of Australian views on the role of nuclear weapons in its national security. Along the way she highlights the specific forces which have in the past, and could once again, call into question the sustainability of the United States' extended nuclear deterrence controls in the region.
