Langmore on Australia in the world

A long time ago John Langmore taught me economics at the University of Papua New Guinea. He’s now a professorial fellow in the Department of Political Science at Melbourne University and president of the UN Association of Australia. Between times he’s been a Federal Labor MP for 12 years (and a nemesis of Paul Keating) and Director of the Division for Social Policy and Development in the UN in New York.

On Tuesday 20 November he’s giving a talk in Sydney on Australia, our neighbours and global governance. A bit heavy for most people, perhaps, but if you’d like to attend drop an email to me for further details. John is one of the most thoughtful people I’ve known and is always worth listening to.
