Event description

Description

Half of all Timorese citizens have fled their homes at some point in their lives, so my country knows well the horrors of displacement. But we also know that with perseverance, it is possible to rebuild lives and communities.

– José Ramos-Horta

From his own story of exile, to that of his people, in this powerful lecture Nobel Laureate José Ramos-Horta will reflect on the humanitarian, moral and political challenges raised by the plight of refugees and other vulnerable migrants. What role should countries like Australia play in providing for those currently fleeing the catastrophes of the Middle East and Africa?
