 Good International Citizenship: The Case for Decency
 
 

Why should Australia care about poverty, human rights atrocities, environmental catastrophes, weapons proliferation or any other problems afflicting faraway countries, when they don’t have any direct or immediate impact on us? Former foreign minister Gareth Evans has the answer.

 

In his new book, Gareth Evans argues that to be, and be seen to be, a good international citizen is both a moral imperative and a matter of hard-headed national interest. He examines the four key benchmarks in assessing a country’s record as a good international citizen: its foreign aid generosity; its response to human rights violations; its reaction to conflict, mass atrocities, and the refugee flows in their aftermath; and its contribution to addressing the global existential threats posed by climate change, pandemics and nuclear war. Measured against them, Australia’s overall record has been patchy at best, lamentable at worst, and is presently embarrassingly poor. Evans suggests that the public need to persuade our political leaders, on both moral and national interest grounds, to change their ways, and to vote them out if they don’t.

 

Gareth Evans AC QC was a Cabinet minister throughout the Hawke– Keating governments, including as foreign minister from 1988 to 1996. In his 21-year parliamentary career, he served as both leader of the government in the Senate and deputy leader of the Opposition. After leaving politics, he was president of the Brussels-based International Crisis Group from 2000 to 2009, and chancellor of the Australian National University from 2010 to 2019, where he is now Distinguished Honorary Professor.

 

The Hon Gareth Evans AC QC new book titled 'Good International Citizenship: The Case for Decency' will be available to purchase before and after this week's lunch meeting.  Cost is $19.95.

What is a Positive Peace Workshop?  

 

Rotary’s partnership with the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) enhances our peace and conflict resolution efforts with data-driven methodologies and tools. IEP has done the research on how countries create and sustain peace, and it’s helping Rotary put this into action on the ground.

 

The 2-day workshop will cover strategies and tools that can help Rotarians, Rotaractors and peace builders like yourselves to build and sustain peace.

 

The emphasis of the workshop is real actions, led by the participants. You will be given the opportunity to develop real and practical projects underpinned by IEP’s research. The workshop will focus on interactive activities that emphasis peer to peer learning and encourage everyone to engage.

 

As a result of participating in the workshop, participants will have the information and understanding to activate Positive Peace in their clubs and communities.
