Celebrating the University’s 40 Years of Independence and 25 years of Law at UOW, the Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG will deliver a public lecture titled  The United Nations Human Rights Inquiry on North Korea: Background, reaction and prospects.

The lecture, presented as part of UOW’s Asian Law Forum, will delve into a report prepared by Kirby for the United Nations. The investigation revealed many breaches of universal human rights, some of them rising to crimes against humanity: a grave offence against international law.

Justice Kirby is a retired judge, jurist, and academic who is renowned for his commitment to social justice and for his inspirational judgments over a remarkable 35 years as a judge.
