A year since the historic election of Barack Obama as US President, debate rages over whether and how Obama has brought ‘change' to the White House. From the war in Afghanistan to tackling climate change, no one denies that the actions and in-actions of the Obama administration have profoundly affected Australia and the rest of the world.

James Fallows, National Correspondent for the Atlantic Monthly, The Honourable Robert Hill, recently returned Australian Ambassador to the United Nations in New York and Paul Kelly, Editor-at-Large of The Australian, discussed One Year of Obama in a forum moderated by Professor Geoffrey Garrett, Chief Executive of the US Studies Centre.
