PUBLIC LECTURE: A Proper Sense of History
|A Proper Sense of History : Former Prime Minister John Howard will present The Sir Paul Hasluck Foundation Lecture
As Minister for External Affairs and Minister for Defence, Sir Paul Hasluck was integral in formulating Australiaís post war security and foreign policy. He was a strong advocate for our nationís indigenous people, particularly in health and education.
He was a prolific writer, authoring volumes on politics, foreign affairs, public policy and poetry.
Following his graduation from UWA, Sir Paul became a journalist, a diplomat and then a Member of Parliament and a term as Governor-General and remained active in public life following his retirement. Sir Paul died in Perth in 1993.
The Sir Paul Hasluck Foundation was established this year to promote and inform conservative thought and debate of key issues facing Australia. It seeks to celebrate the central insight of Sir Paulís life: that learning and ideas matter.
The lecture will rotate around Australian states, and will feature a renowned speaker addressing a significant contemporary issue, drawing on Sir Paulís interests and principles
