Antipodean perspectives on the EU now on iTunes

Beginning in March 2009 the interviews that Stefan Auer, Deputy Director of the Innovative Universities European Union Centre (IUEU), has been using as a component of his innovative course on the European Union will have a new form of delivery, and potentially a far larger audience than the 350 or so undergraduates they currently reach each year. These materials, used by the IUEU to teach the course on the EU across Australia, will now be accessible to students and other interested parties all around the world. The 50-minute interviews Dr Auer has conducted with prominent experts on, and officials of, the EU, will now be available to the global public as part of the extensive iTunes catalogue. His interviewees in 2008 included the (then) EU Ambassador to Australia and New Zealand, Bruno Julien, the Irish Ambassador to Australia and New Zealand, Máirtín Ó Fainín, as well as Professor Richard Pearson from Sussex University. From the start of the academic year in March 2009 another 10 interviews will be recorded for the undergraduate program and then made available on iTunes.
