5 Minutes of Peace: Pat Dodson
Up next in our new series, 5 Minutes of Peace, is Sydney Peace Prize laureate, Pat Dodson. In 2008, Senator Dodson received the prize for his courageous advocacy of the human rights of Indigenous people, for distinguished leadership of the reconciliation movement, and for a lifetime of commitment to peace with justice, through dialogue and many other expressions on nonviolence.
In this slice of his 2008 lecture, Dodson focuses on the need for change in Australia through a “new Australian dialogue.” Delivered during the global financial crisis, Dodson’s lecture is particularly relevant now, considering the challenges our world is facing. So, sit back and listen to the extraordinary Pat Dodson.
