About this event

Craig Foster AM, former Socceroos captain and now human rights advocate will present the 2021 UniSA Nelson Mandela Lecture.

Despite calls of ‘togetherness’ and ‘shared humanity’, of the ‘interconnectedness’ of everyone in society in Australia and around the world during the height of COVID-19, the pandemic uncovered staggering inequality. With the burden of the pandemic falling disproportionately on women and front line workers and, along with a decaying aged care sector, victimisation of the poor and minority groups, ongoing trauma and deaths in custody of First Nations peoples, a failure of Parliamentary leaders to respond humanely to claims of sexual abuse and rape and the treatment of asylum seekers and refugees, it is clear that society does not work for far too many and, presently, we are not 'all in this together'.

Craig explores a new social bargain with human rights at its core.
