Loreto Normanhurst - Mary Ward Justice Lecture 2018


Shouting Across the Divide - In Search of a More Just Australia


For years Australian society has been divided by the debate over asylum seekers.

It has worsened over time. Twenty-five years ago, the Catholic Social Justice Statement on immigration noted: ‘underneath the surface of the Australian debate there are often unresolved fears of newcomers, other “races”, pluralism, conflict and change.’

The question of how we should respond to strangers is the same as the one posed by the lawyer when he asks Jesus: ‘Who is my neighbour?’
Join in the discussion with an expert panel. The event will feature panellists Julian Burnside AO QC, Dr Sara Townend, and Professor Dr David Isaacs. 
Light refreshments will be served from 6.30pm with the discussion to commence at 7pm.
