While Australia’s sovereign wealth fund, the Future Fund, has excluded Israeli arms manufacturer, Elbit Systems, from its investment portfolio because of allegations of its involvement in the production of cluster munitions,  hte Victorian government seems to be swimming against the tide, establishing a partnership with Elbit Systems Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems, to establish a research ‘Centre of Excellence’.  

Australia’s public funds should not be involved in furthering grave human rights abuses.

This show features interviews wth Rawan Arraf from the Australian Centre for International Justice and  Jake Lynch, Associate Professor, Department of Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney and member of the Boycotts, Divestments and Sanctions Australia campaign.
