What’s life really like as a political staffer at Parliament House?
Ever watched an episode of The West Wing and wondered if Australian political advisors have anything close to that experience up at Parliament House? On 15 Minutes in Canberra, Senior Policy Fellow Hayley Channer interviews Raoul Heinrichs. Raoul has been a Senior Advisor to two crossbench Senators, including Jacqui Lambie, and been intimately involved in the policy development and negotiating process.

In addition to sharing his insights from working as a political staffer, Raoul draws on earlier career highlights producing strategic analysis for world-leading think tanks to offer an assessment of Australia's strategic circumstances in the Indo-Pacific. Spoiler, it's bleak!
