Every month this year, two or three Ambassadors and/or High Commissioners from EU Member States, together with Australian Ambassadors to Europe, will gather at the ANUCES to talk about their country and why it joined the EU, their current position and how their country interacts with Australia. A number of the events will be recorded and broadcasted by Radio National’s “Big Ideas” program.
