This month, the United States Studies Centre (USSC) farewelled Ambassador Jane Hardy as a Visiting Senior Fellow with the Foreign Policy and Defence Program. In her time with the Centre, she brokered countless meetings with key government officials, moderated our memorable 20 years since 9/11 webinar with David Petraeus and Duncan Lewis and published the brief Integrated deterrence in the Indo-Pacific. In particular, Ambassador Hardy's Indo-Pacific expertise after serving as Consul-General in Hawaii brought unique senior executive insights which were invaluable during the critical weeks of AUSMIN, the Quad leaders meeting and especially the announcement of AUKUS. We look forward to continuing our close working relationship and to welcoming other career diplomats and government executives as visiting fellows in future.
