The Lowy Institute's new Executive Director, Michael Wesley, used his Wednesday Lowy Lunch address yesterday to survey Australia's international challenges ('the most difficult diplomatic milieu we've ever faced') and to argue that think tanks have a vital role to play in meeting them.

Below, a short interview with Michael, who gave The Interpreter a nice plug in the Q&A of his talk, and who will no doubt be making many more appearances here.
