In an opinion piece in The Sydney Morning Herald, Lowy Institute Research Fellow Alex Oliver argues that recent cuts to the BBC World Service and Voice of America indicate that the West is in danger of losing its voice to the world if damaging cuts to international broadcasting and public diplomacy programs continue. Australia’s own international broadcasters, Australia Network and Radio Australia, play a valuable role in the region and should be properly supported by Government.Sydney Morning Herald, 2 March 2011, p. 15
