Kevin Rudd was Australia's 26th prime minister, serving from 2007 to 2010, and again in 2013. He was also the country's foreign minister from 2010 to 2012. Starting his career as a China scholar, Rudd is currently president of the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) -- a think tank dedicated to using track-two diplomacy to assist governments and businesses in resolving policy challenges within Asia, and between Asia and the West.
Recently, Rudd talked to The Jakarta Post about how he has managed to overcome challenges to become a statesman, diplomat, and academic at once -- not to mention his attempts to learn Chinese languages and culture.
