On Thursday the 24th of March, SUUNS held its first speaker event for 2016, at which spoke The Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG, former Justice of the High Court of Australia, current chairperson of UN Human Rights Council Commission into Human Rights Abuses in the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, and current member of the UN Secretary-General’s High Level Panel on Access to Essential Medicines.

The engaging speech was followed by a vibrant discussion and exchange of questions, where members were able to directly ask The Hon Michael Kirby about his work in the UN, the work of the UN at large and current critical problems facing the global community.
