Episode 22 – The South Pacific with Ambassador James Batley

My guest is former Australian Ambassador and regional trouble-shooter James Batley, who has taken on some of our most challenging foreign policy roles – from Bougainville and East Timor to the Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands (RAMSI).

Batley now serves as a Distinguished Policy Fellow in the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs at the Australian National University. The piece we mention in the podcast is titled “Getting realistic about the South Pacific”, which was recently published by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.
