Thursday 11 March from 6:30pm to 7:30pm

In an age increasingly defined by accusation and resentment, can forgiveness play a more powerful role? Who has the right to forgive? And who should be forgiven? 

Individuals and societies have the right to withhold forgiveness, but can letting go allow grievances to impact us less? Forgiveness does not change the past, but it can transform the future. 

Martha Minow, Harvard Law Professor and human rights expert, in conversation with leading UNSW Law Professor George Williams will explore how we think about forgiveness.  

Since 2012 the annual Gandhi Oration has been hosted by UNSW Sydney to celebrate the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi as a champion of human rights. This year’s Gandhi Oration also marks the launch of UNSW’s dynamic and innovative Faculty of Law and Justice’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
