Hon. Dikgang Moseneke, who rose from a human rights leader during apartheid to Deputy Chief Justice of South Africa, will join Duke University as a Rubenstein Fellow during the spring semester of 2020. At Duke, Moseneke will explore current challenges to constitutional democracy and rule of law.
Moseneke is the eighth expert to join Duke's Rubenstein Fellows Academy, and the first international fellow.
Students, faculty and the public are invited to a free welcome event, a Robert R. Wilson Distinguished Lecture co-hosted by the Office of the Provost, the Sanford School of Public Policy, the Duke Center for International Development, and the Duke Law School. The event is part of Duke's 2020 Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration.
The event runs from 5-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21, in the Sanford School's Fleishman Commons. Moseneke will reflect on some of his life experiences through an oral history interview conducted by professors Catherine Admay of Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy and Karin Shapiro of Duke's African and African American Studies Department. A reception and book signing will follow. The event will be livestreamed. Duke's Amandla African Chorus will open the program.
Parking is available at the Bryan Center Parking Deck Garage (entrance on Science Drive across the street from the Camel statue).
