Public Statement from Professor John Keane
24 April, 2013
The Institute for Democracy and Human Rights (IDHR) at the University of Sydney and representatives of His Holiness the Dalai Lama have agreed to host an on-campus lecture for students at the University of Sydney, in mid-June 2013. This will be the first engagement of the Dalai Lama during his Australian tour.
The IDHR looks forward to hosting His Holiness the Dalai Lama under the theme ‘Education Matters’.
The University of Sydney and IDHR remain firmly committed to the principle that academics are free to invite to our campus anyone who has a legitimate contribution to make to public debate.
It is hoped the mid-June event will form part of a determined commitment of the University of Sydney to develop a constructive dialogue on matters concerning Tibet and the wider region.
