ANU has the rather splendid news that inspiration Burmese democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi is coming to Canberra to collect a hat!
The Australian National University will award an Honorary Doctorate to Daw Aung San Suu Kyi late in November.
Vice-Chancellor of ANU, Professor Ian Young AO, said that he was delighted when he heard news of the Burmese Opposition Leader’s acceptance of the offer.
“It will be an honour to welcome Aung San Suu Kyi to our campus later this month and hear her speak of her activities for democracy in Myanmar.
“It will be a pleasure to witness her officially become part of our academic community.”
