    The Free Kylie Campaign - Where to from here?

    The Free Kylie Campaign - Where to from here?

    Welcome to Episode 101 of Good Will Hunters.

    Today we’re talking about Kylie Moore-Gilbert. Kylie is an Australian academic currently imprisoned in Iran. In this episode I speak to two of Kylie’s friends and colleagues, Dara and Marika, about Kylie. We discuss her arrest, her transfer to Quarchuck prison after two years of solitary confinement, and the quiet diplomacy versus the more public diplomacy that their campaign to Free Kylie has grappled with.

    Allan Behm - How do aid, security and foreign policy relate?

    Allan Behm - How do aid, security and foreign policy relate?

    Welcome to Episode 100 of Good Will Hunters brought to you by Good Will Media. This episode really crept up on us - it’s so exciting to reach 100 EPISODE, and if you’re listening to this, and you’re a regular listen, I’d really love you to reach out and introduce yourself if we haven’t already met! I feel as though I know so many of you personally already, but it really would be the most special 100th episode gift if you reached out and shared your thoughts on the show. My email is rachel@goodwillmedia.com.au

    As we reach this milestone, I am of course thinking about what comes next for GWH. Do we keep doing what we’re doing, do we change the format - who knows! It’s all ahead of us. In the meantime, after a big budget week and lot’s of aid commentary, I’m really pleased to share this episode with Allan Behm with you.

    Allan Behm is head of the international and security affairs program at the Australia Institute. In this episode, we discuss why aid is a human security issue, and the relationship between aid and foreign affairs. Allan is a brilliant thinker, writer and speaker and I thoroughly enjoyed learning from him in this interview.

    I hope you enjoy the episode and I’d like to personally thank you all for your continued support of Good Will Hunters.

    Sofia Shakil - What impact will Covid-19 have on women and girls in Pakistan?

    Welcome to Episode 98 of Good Will Hunters brought to you by Good Will Media. Our guest today is Sofia Shakil.

    This is the second in our two part series on the Asia Foundation, so if you haven’t listened to last weeks episode with Sam Chittick, I suggest you do so now.

    Sofia is The Asia Foundation’s country representative in Pakistan. She is an experienced policy economist, with nearly 25 years of experience in the development sector, with a focus on human development, public sector policy, and governance reform. She has held several positions with the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, and international NGOs.

    In this episode we discuss the development challenges facing Pakistan, including on governance, education and gender equality. In particular we discuss the impact of Australia ending it’s bilateral aid program to Pakistan, and in doing so, withdrawing vital funding for the education of girls. We discuss the impact of Covid-19 on Pakistan’s development, inclluding how the Asia Foundation will continue to partner with the private sector to achieve development outcomes.
