Welcome to Episode 94 of Good Will Hunters from the Development Policy Centre.
Today on the show I’m speaking to academic and author Dr Gordon Peake. Gordon works at the School of Regulation and Global Governance at ANU, on governance and conflict in the Asia-Pacific region. He is an expert on and has lived in Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea.
Gordon is also a popular author, and his book Beloved Land: Stories, Struggles & Secrets from Timor-Leste was winner of the 2014 ACT Book of the Year & People’s Choice Awards.
In the episode, Gordon reflects on his experiences living and working abroad. He discusses the challenges Timor-Leste has had following independence, the role aid, and lessons for Bougainville.
We have included relevant links in the show notes, along with recent articles from the Devpolicy Blog written by Gordon Peake.
Enjoy the episode,
