In the Good Will Hunters Summer Series, ACFID’s Bridi Rice takes you inside the Canberra foreign policy community to ask one key question: what does increased poverty mean for Australian international affairs?
Welcome to Episode 1 of Good Will Hunters’ Summer Series, brought to you by Good Will Media. Today, in the first of this six-part series, our host Bridi Rice chats to Richard Maude about how foreign policy is made.
Richard is the inaugural Executive Director, Policy, Asia Society Australia, and Senior Fellow, Asia Society Policy Institute – the first senior executive role in the Institute outside the United States. Richard Maude most recently served as Deputy Secretary, Indo-Pacific Group, in the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Richard’s thoughtful, reflective and honest insights highlight that never has there been a more important time to pause, contest and carefully construct a way forward for Australian development and foreign policy.
