Promoting contemporary thought leadership in the Asia Pacific
The Griffith University Asia Lecture is a significant event for the university. Its aims are to promote contemporary thought leadership in the Asia Pacific, inform debate on current regional developments, and engage the community on issues of significance for Australia in the region. The inaugural Lecture in 2016 was delivered by former Australian Prime Minister, The Honourable John Howard OM AC, and in 2017 by Mr Peter Varghese AO. In 2018, we were delighted to host former Indonesian Foreign Minister, Dr Marty Natalegawa. In 2019 we were honoured that Dame Meg Taylor could bring a blue pacific voice to the Griffith Asia Lecture.
