It’s an advantage to be a woman in diplomacy: UN Ambassador to Australia
What would you ask the Australian Ambassador to the United Nations if you had her ear?
University of Wollongong International Relations students relished the chance to quiz Australian Ambassador to the United Nations, Gillian Bird PSM about world affairs on Thursday, 12 September.
UOW students didn’t shy away from asking tough questions about current international issues and were interested to hear about how an ambassador dispassionately represents the policies of the Australian Government of the day, even if it differs from personal views. They also asked about how she navigates diplomatic relationships at the UN when sensitive issues are at play.
