Event description

Description

The John Bonython Lecture, one of the most anticipated events of the CIS calendar, is not to be missed. Thursday, 1 November. Reception from 5:30PM Dinner at 7:00PM.


All across the western world, the progressive left is placing great stress on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics. Although “diversity” is now the all-purpose justification for this campaign, nations such as Australia, Britain and the US are more diverse and tolerant than ever.


Identity politics should not be used to suppress freedom of expression. Emphasising a fear of giving offense should offend every genuine liberal. Rather than pitting people and groups against each other, we should be fostering the Enlightenment principles of universal human interests.

Daniel Hannan

Daniel Hannan is a leading British writer and journalist. After 17 years as a Member of the European Parliament, campaigning for British withdrawal from the EU, he succeeded in abolishing his job in the Brexit referendum on 23 June 2016.

Author of nine books, including New York Times bestseller Inventing Freedom: How the English-Speaking Peoples Made the Western World and Sunday Times bestseller Vote Leave. His latest is What Next: How to get the best from Brexit.

The John Bonython Lecture Series

The annual series began in 1984 and has had a tremendous impact fostering debate, injecting new ideas into the broader public-policy discourse.

Past lecturers include Francis Fukuyama, Rupert Murdoch and Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Leading thinkers from around the world have used this platform to discuss the social, economic, and political forces shaping Australia and the world.
