Mr Stan Grant
Mr Kerry O'Brien
Stan Grant has built an illustrious career as a distinguished Australian and international broadcaster, author and commentator. Over more than 30 years Stan has reported or anchored for the ABC, SBS, NITV, Seven and Sky News in Australia, and for CNN and Al Jazeera in the Middle East, China and Hong Kong.
A Wiradjuri and Kamilaroi man, Stan is also a powerful and articulate voice advocating for First Nations rights. The latest of his six books, With the Falling of the Dusk, draws on his personal experiences reporting from the front lines of the world's flashpoints to explore what is driving the world into deep crisis and how it might be averted.
He has received a string of prestigious international and Australian awards, including the Walkley Book award for his evocative best seller, Talking to My Country. In 2016 he was appointed to the Referendum Council on Indigenous Australians.
Stan was previously Professor of Global Affairs at Griffith University and is now Chair of Indigenous/Australian Belongings at Charles Sturt University and International Affairs Analyst at the ABC.
Griffith is proud to welcome such an articulate and thoughtful commentator as Stan for the next conversation with Kerry O'Brien in its A better future for all series. Join Stan and Kerry as they explore the opportunities and challenges facing our rapidly and unpredictable changing world order, and what the future might hold for all Australians.
