|Foreign affairs as a water-cooler conversation - the challenge awaiting us
The AIIA WA in partnership with the Centre for Muslim States and Societies is proud to host a Fellow's Lecture by well-known ABC presenter Geraldine Doogue titled Foreign Affairs as a water-cooler conversation – the challenge awaiting us.
Geraldine is a West Australian with a long and prestigious career in both public and commercial media. She can be heard every Saturday morning on ABC Radio National’s Saturday Extra where a wide range of current international issues is discussed with experts from Australia and around the world. Geraldine received a United Nations Media Peace Prize as well as two Penguin Awards for excellence in broadcasting from the Television Society of Australia. In 2003, she was recognised as an Officer in the Order of Australia for services to the community and media. Geraldine tackles a wide range of subjects with rigour, optimism, humour and warmth.
In 2016 Geraldine was made a Fellow of the AIIA for her distinguished contribution to the field of international relations in Australia. She accepted our invitation to deliver her Fellow’s Lecture at the AIIA in WA in June, and will travel to Perth specially for this event. The lecture will be followed by a light supper and ticket sales will raise funds for the AIIA WA Bursary for Studies in Asia program which enables young West Australians to undertake educational experiences in Asia.
Because food is involved, bookings and prepayment are essential and tickets sales will end on the 22nd of June.

Time: Early! The lecture will begin at 5:30 pm. A light supper will follow the lecture
