              Julia Gillard former Prime Minister of Australia

              Engagement in the Asian Century; Opportunity of Our Lifetime

              The first female Prime Minister of Australia, Julia Gillard, began her political career as a university student leader.  At 37, she was elected to Parliament as a member of the Labor Party. In 2007 she became the first Deputy Prime Minister and in 2010, despite being in the minority, she was elected Prime Minister.  She recounts her tenure and the challenges of being a female leader in her autobiography, My Story.

              As leader of government she managed the 12th biggest economy in the world through the recent global financial crisis.  She is credited with a number of successes during her administration: in the health sector – reform in medical training, delivery of care, and insurance; in taxation – cuts for middle and low income citizens; in environment -a carbon tax exchange scheme; in technology – a national broadband network.

              Ms. Gillard developed Australia’s guiding policy paper, “Australia in the Asian Century.”    She will extend her knowledge of this 21st century challenge discussing the lessons essential to national success as we navigate the strategic, economic and leadership challenges a rising Asia presents.

                      The Evolution of The American Presidency

                      “We should research with monkish rigor, as we write (and lecture) with novelistic flair.”

                      These words reflect Dr. Suri’s own personality and his approach to the study and understanding of the repercussions of historical trends on the modern world.  His academic work seeks to explain how war, migration, nation-building, and mobility through higher education have transformed the workings of power at the local and international levels.

                      He is the author and editor of nine books on contemporary politics and foreign policy.  His most recent book is titled, The Impossible Presidency, The Rise and Fall of America’s Highest Office.  He discusses the transformation of the limited role the Founding Fathers envisioned of the office of president to its current status as the most powerful job in the world.
