Long time between seats – PM lobbies for Aus return to UN Security Council

Australia came late to the UN Security Council party. We stepped out in 1986 and may have left our run a bit late in getting back in this year. Prime Minister Julia Gillard has been spending the week in New York lobbying African nations for their much-needed votes to put Australia on the international stage.

Dr Benjamin Macqueen from Monash University school of Politics and Social Inquiry thinks we may have left our run a bit late if we’re to upstage Finland and Luxemberg who are well-primed to take most European votes.

Angus Randall spoke with him about the PM’s lobbying efforts.
