Shirin Ebadi’s lecture, “Human Rights in the Islamic World,” has been rescheduled due to circumstances beyond her control.

This event will now take place at 12:30 p.m. on April 23 (Thursday) in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center at the University of Notre Dame. 

Ticket holders must exchange their tickets. Please call the ticket office at (574) 631-2800 as soon as possible to get new tickets.

Ebadi is the first Iranian, and the first Muslim woman, to win the Nobel Peace Prize. A human rights lawyer, she has devoted her life to the promotion of women’s rights and the defense of children and political activists. She has spoken out strongly against discrimination and injustice in her country, at times despite great risk to her own safety. She is a conscious Muslim who believes that dialogue is the best path to changing attitudes and resolving conflict.

This free but ticketed event is the 15th Annual Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., Lecture in Ethics and Public Policy, sponsored by Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies.
