Podcast: In the Name of Civilisation

The idea of civilisation has been deployed throughout history to justify all manner of interventions and socio-political engineering, and yet all too often the actions that follow the language of civilisation are anything but civilised.

From Australia's Radio National comes a podcast by Dr Brett Bowden, Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of New South Wales and Research Fellow in the Centre for International Governance & Justice at the Australian National University. The lecture is followed by a response by Professor the Honourable Kim Beazley, Chancellor of The Australian National University.
