The PAOCA cordially invites all Old Reds to the 2012 Sydney Dinner, to be held on Friday 31 August at Tattersalls Club. Our guest speaker is Old Red, Professor Richard Broinowski (PAC 1954-1955) who, following his time at PAC, went on to study Law at the University of Adelaide, being admitted to the South Australian Supreme Court Bar as a barrister and solicitor.
Richard entered the Department of External Affairs as a junior diplomat in 1963, and following earlier postings in Asia and the Middle East was appointed as Australia’s Ambassador to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in 1983.
Following his initial Ambassadorship, Richard was appointed Ambassador to the Republic of (South) Korea from 1987 to1989, a posting which covered the 1988 Seoul Olympics. He took a break from diplomacy in 1990 to join the ABC as General Manager of Radio Australia in Melbourne, and returned to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in 1993. He was appointed as Ambassador to Mexico, the Central American Republics and Cuba in early 1995 and served there until mid-1997.
Richard is currently an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Media and Communications at the University of Sydney and has written and published three books, along with numerous articles on foreign affairs for many Australian periodicals and newspapers, and makes regular appearances on current affairs for SBS, ABC and Al Jazeera Television International.
