Desmond Tutu 11th Annual Peace Lecture 2021

Speaking truth to power: no future without justice

The 11th Desmond Tutu International Peace Lecture will be delivered by four global leaders – South Africa’s former public protector, Thuli Madonsela; women’s and children’s rights activist Graça Machel; chair of The Elders and former president of Ireland Mary Robinson; and, the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s highest spiritual leader. This year’s lecture is a celebratory event that will take place on Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu’s 90th birthday on 7 October 2021. The event will be online-only, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
