The Scholars podcast is a show featuring scholars from the General Sir John Monash Foundation. Hosted by CEO of Mojo Media, Justin Kelly, he interviews the best, brightest, boldest and bravest across all fields of academia, business, science, humanities, and the arts. In this episode, Justin interviews international peacekeeper and human rights lawyer Andrew Hudson, who returned home to Melbourne from New York just prior to recording.
Andrew’s work has included securing a UN peacekeeping force that saved thousands of lives in Central African Republic and securing an agreement for the UN to send cross-border aid convoys to reach three million starving Syrians.
In this episode, Justin chats with Andrew about his influential work, at the helm of Crisis Action in New York, an organisation that works to protect civilians from armed conflict.
