  • Bosnia - Is the Nightmare of War Returning?

    Last month Milorad Dodik sparked international controversy when a vote was cast to pull the autonomous statelet of Republic Srpska out of the Bosnian federation. In this episode of The Focus, John is joined by Bosnian politician and policy analyst Reuf Bajrovic where they discuss the ramifications of this move. Was this in answer to legitimate Bosnian Serb political grievances? How will this affect the area formerly known as Yugoslavia, the site of some of the worst fighting in Europe since World War II. And what will this mean for European strategic stability?


  • COVID-19 - Who is to Blame? Feat. Sascha-Dominik Dov Bachmann

    With the COVID-19 Pandemic raging its way continually through countries, savaging populations of India and South Africa, the question still on everyone's lips is "who's to blame"? With some rallying for independent investigations what seems to be apparent is that while the virus was released by accident, the following actions and containment were not handled well, and certainly there has been some opportunism by parties to gain strategic footholds during a delicate time. Joining us to discuss these pertinent issues is the Human Rights Law Professor at the University of Canberra, Sascha-Dominik Dov Bachmann.


    This Podcast is Produced by Tim Whiffen of Whimsy Productions for Co-host David Olney, and John Bruni, Director of SAGE International Australia.

  • Hermanos de Armas ‘Brothers at Arms’: A tale of two countries Colombia and Venezuela

    John, David and Tim are joined by Ambassador of Colombia to Australia, H.E. Alberto José Mejia Ferrero & Prof. R. Evan Ellis, US Army War College, to discuss the complications Colombia faces with the Venezuela crises. This region is of utmost significance to Australia as our interests shift from rising tensions with the Chinese Communist Party. With the Colombian embassy being closed in Venezuela and the Venezuelan refugee crisis at its peak, it is imperative for Australian's to watch with a keen eye for how assistance can be offered to strengthen important South American relations.
