World Interfaith Harmony Week Lecture
Religions for Peace Australia and RMIT Chaplaincy will conduct a public lecture, “Multifaith Australia – Reimagining Our Common Future” in celebration of World Interfaith Harmony Week, on 6 February, 2014.
The 2011 Census revealed that Australia is becoming more religious in a religiously diverse way. In such a multi-religous and multicultural context, what is the role of religion, religious communities and their spiritual leaders in imaginging a common future for Australia? Are civic and social leaders involved in imagining a common future for a multi-religious and multifaith Australia?
In collaboration with RMIT University Chaplaincy, Religions for Peace Australia presents a public lecture by Emeritus Professor Joseph Camilleri on this significant topic. The session will be chaired by Ms Patricia Collett, Executive Director of United Nations Association of Australia (Victorian Division).
Joseph Camilleri is Emeritus Professor of International Relations at La Trobe University. He has written and lectured extensively on international relations, governance and globalisation, human rights, North-South relations, international organisations, the United Nations, and the Asia-Pacific region.
Emeritus Professor Camilleri is actively engaged in international research, education and advocacy on issues of human rights, civilisation dialogue, global governance reform, peace and security. He is the recipient of St Michael’s Award for Distinguished Service to the Community, and past Australian President of the International Christian Peace Movement, Pax Christi.
