The Hon. Alexander Downer AC addressed a range of geopolitical issues for an AIJAC Live Online webinar on 30 August 2021. He is currently the Executive Chair of the International School for Government at King’s College London.

Mr. Downer has had a long and distinguished career in public service. He served as an advisor to Liberal Party leaders Malcolm Fraser and Andrew Peacock.
