Tony Fitzgerald lecture with Hilary Charlesworth


The Griffith University – Tony Fitzgerald Scholarship Program and Lecture Series contributes to the capacity of practitioners and researchers to maintain the Fitzgerald vision – to keep Parliament in its rightful place at the centre of the democratic system but with the law, community and media entrusted with an active role to keep the system honest and open.

This year, we welcome Professor Hilary Charlesworth to the lecture podium to present Rights, rituals and ritualism: Making international human rights law work.
