15 Minutes in Canberra
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in foreign policy? Canberra is buzzing with seasoned foreign affairs and strategic policy experts, but for newcomers and mid-tier professionals, the ‘Canberra bubble’ can be tricky to navigate.
Join host Hayley Channer on the ground as she speaks with colleagues from government, academia, and the private sector, to bring you their unique policy insights and career advice in a neat 15 minutes.
Based in Canberra, Australia, Hayley Channer is a Senior Policy Fellow at the Perth USAsia Centre.
How is the Quad progressing?
Hayley Channer is joined by Dr Kristi Govella, Senior Fellow and Deputy Director of the Asia Program at the German Marshall Fund. Together, they unpack the state of the Quad following the meeting of its countries’ foreign ministers in New York City earlier this month. Hayley and Kristi consider what the Quad has achieved to-date, and ask: should Quad partners focus globally or narrowly on the Indo-Pacific? Is there room for South Korea to join the group? And what could happen to the Quad if Donald Trump wins the US presidential election in 2024?
