Show Notes

Former Ambassador to Myanmar Christopher Lamb, Christopher retired from a career in diplomacy spaning over 30 years. He now heads a number of advisory board, working with organisations like the Red Cross and The Australian Mynamaar Instute, and enjoys a post as an Honorary Assosiate Professor at the University of Melbourne.

We discussed the history of the people known as Rohingya and the realities of the current crisis from the perspective of someone who knows the region intimately. It’s an incredibly informative journey with some insights that only a man like Christopher could know. We get into details that don’t often make the mainstream news and covering one of world’s least know crisis.
