Tim Bonyhady
6.00PM to 8.00PM Lecture
  • Professor Tim Bonyhady, ANU College of Law

In 2015 Andrew Sayers painted Tim Bonyhady’s portrait, showing him on a Viennese chair, and gave the painting to him. For all their immersion in Australian art history, neither Andrew nor Tim realized there was a remarkable precursor to Tim’s portrait, painted in Melbourne more than 125 years before.

The conference theme is drawn from Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice, an iconic play that speaks to our times. They may not be ‘the best and worst of times’ but, we all live with great uncertainty, and in parts of the world, seemingly immutable enmities.

  • Dr Fernand de Varennes, United Nations Special Rapporteur on Minority Issues

It is sometimes forgotten that one of the premises of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights is that it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.

  • Thomas Albrecht, Regional Representative, UNHCR Regional Representation in Canberra

Australia was a founding signatory of the 1951 Refugee Convention which remains the cornerstone of international protection for displaced persons. Almost 70 years later, while the Convention has proved adaptable to modern conflicts and challenges, there remains an imperative for Australia to also uphold these principles and standards domestically.
