This week Lowy Institute Executive Director Allan Gyngell launched a Perspectives paper on Australian foreign policy in the Rudd Government's first year. 

In the interview below, Allan discusses why Rudd is a new type of Australian Prime Minister, and Rudd's efforts to reconcile two different strands of Labor Party thought. He looks at why the Prime Minister has set himself such an ambitious agenda and the risks if he can't deliver. The podcast of Allan's speech can be downloaded here.
