The Anna Lindh Lecture
The Anna Lindh Lecture was first organised in 2005. It pays homage to the Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs who was assassinated in 2003. Since then, Lund University and the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law have taken the initiative of highlighting human rights matters through an annual public lecture to be given by a distinguished scholar, politician, diplomat or international top- level civil servant.
Lund University and the Raoul Wallenberg Institute are organising the event and honoured to invite you.
