Carla Dusevic's curator insight, March 17, 2013 6:27 PM

This article explores Australia's role and influence inside the United Nations regarding their placement in Afghanistan with our American allies. In 2012, Australia promised to increased its aid to Afghanistan to $250 million per annum in the next 2-3 years, and in total over the last decade has supplied almost $1 billion. This article demonstrates that Australia has been a major contributor and supporter of the reformation and plan to secure stable, social and economic development in such a significant country.

With the arrival of the first Jesuit Pope Francis, the 5 Jesuit schools within Australia have celebrated with much joy and excitement. With the Pope's reputation for strong promotion of social justice and humility, students not only feel encouraged to act upon their Jesuit mission more actively into their learning and lives, but also gain a deeper connection with the new leader of the Church.

In this article we see how as defence forces return from operations in Afghanistran, East Timor and Solomon Islands that we must prepare ourselves for more training and exercising of regimes to ensure success in further deployment. Hence, our links are evident as we withdraw from helping allies and supporting other nations.
