The Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG

North Korea; Will it all end in tears?

The Hon Michael Kirby is an international jurist, educator and former High Court Judge. Michael has served as a Deputy President of the Australian Conciliation and Arbitration Commission (1975-83); Chairman of the Australian Law Reform Commission (1975-84); Judge of the Federal Court of Australia (1983-4); President of the New South Wales Court of Appeal (1984-96); President of the Court of Appeal of Solomon Islands (1995-96) and Justice of the High Court of Australia (1996-2009).

In 2013-14, Michael chaired the commission of inquiry (COI) for the UN Human Rights Council on human rights violations in North Korea. The COI found many grave crimes against humanity. So far, there has been no redress, still less transparent accountability,
from the regime of Kim Jong Un. Please join us for this lecture as Michael Kirby addresses the situation in North Korea along with other human rights engagements in which he has been involved. His talk will include a Q&A session.
