Gareth Evans in conversation at the Global Change Institute

In his book Incorrigible Optimist Professor Gareth Evans looks back over the highs and lows of his public life as a student activist, civil libertarian, law reformer, industry minister, international policymaker, educator and politician. He explains why it is that, despite multiple disappointments, he continues to believe that a safer, saner and more decent world is achievable, and why, for all its frustrations, politics remains an indispensable profession not only for megalomaniacs but idealists.


Professor the Hon Gareth Evans, now Chancellor of The Australian National University, was a member of the Australian Parliament for 21 years, and a cabinet minister throughout the Hawke-Keating era.
