The Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, whoever they may be after the negotiations following the election, will have to deal with ‘Australia’s diplomatic deficit’ – the gap between the challenges facing Australian diplomacy and the resources available to meet them. Peter Edwards, a distinguished historian of Australian foreign policy and policy-making, will show how the present and the future of Australian diplomacy have been shaped by its past.
Friday 3 September, 5.30pm, Flinders University Victoria Square (old Reserve Bank building, corner Flinders Street). All welcome, light refreshments. Click here for more information.
This talk marks the award of the title Fellow of the Australian Institute of International Affairs to Professor Edwards and is jointly presented by the Library and the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences.
