The central event is the Hewitt Bostock Lecture at Green College that will be delivered by Justice Murray Sinclair, Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Justice Sinclair will assess the significance of the Report and the process that was the work of the Commission. Further, Justice Sinclair will share what he perceives to be the urgencies and opportunities of the moment and suggest how the expertise and resources of the university community might best be directed toward implementing the Commission’s recommendations. The focus will be on the best practical strategies, at the regional and national levels, that will most likely translate into action. The lecture will be followed by a general discussion before moving onto a panel of indigenous scholars from the Faculties of Arts, Education, Law and Medicine who will respond to the lecture as well as provide a critical discussion of the Commission’s recommendations.
