Professor the Hon Gareth Evans AC QC FASSA (Chancellor and Honorary Professorial Fellow, Australian National University; President Emeritus, International Crisis Group; former Foreign Minister of Australia) will give a series of three public lectures and a concluding symposium as Humanitas Visiting Professor in Statecraft and Diplomacy 2013.

Abstract

Are there any grounds for believing that, when it comes to violent conflict between and within states, the world – contrary to daily media reporting, and nearly all our instincts – is in fact becoming safer and saner? If that really is the trend, what are its foundations, and what can be done to reinforce it? Gareth Evans will draw in this lecture on his long experience in conflict prevention and resolution, in particular as Australian Foreign Minister (1988-96) and President of the International Crisis Group (2000-09).
