Description

Given Professor Reese’s work on the Commonwealth and related countries, international relations and his awareness of Indigenous Australia, I hope that he would appreciate tonight’s discussion around the powerful political phenomenon – reconciliation – that springs out of the histories and colonial and constitutional relationships of so many commonwealth countries, or British settler societies, and which have powerful legacies today. As you will see, these are matters of colonialism and empire that continue to shape the present in multiple and challenging ways.
