Charles Sturt University’s Professor Stan Grant Jnr is among the leading international voices invited to appear in an online debate series hosted by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre and The Conversation.
The online series was created to bring together leading experts published in The Conversation for three special broadcasts to discuss a range of topics linked to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Charles Sturt’s Vice-Chancellor’s Chair of Australian-Indigenous Belonging Professor Grant will appear as a panellist in the series’ ‘Borders and the Pandemic’ broadcast on Thursday 16 July from 6pm to 7.15pm.
The broadcast will explore how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way the world thinks about borders, and what Australia and the world can expect as the borders start to reopen.
Joining Professor Grant on the panel is Emeritus Professor Hugh White AO from Australian National University and Professor Dennis Altman AM from La Trobe University.
Registrations for the series’ 'Borders and the Pandemic' live broadcast are available on the 'Events Program' page on the University of South Australia website. Registrants will be sent a link to the online broadcast and details of how to submit questions for the panellists ahead of the event.
All of the broadcasts in the series will be made available on YouTube and will air on ABC Radio National’s Big Ideas program.
The previous two broadcast in the series, ‘Crisis and Denial’ and ‘The Domino Effect: Climate Change and Pandemics’ were broadcasted on Thursday 18 June and Thursday 2 July, respectively.
Professor Grant is the former Global Affairs and Indigenous Affairs Analyst for the ABC and served for a decade as a Senior International Correspondent for CNN in Asia and the Middle East.
He has more than 30 years’ experience in radio and television news and current affairs.
