The organization's Chairman, together with its Australian Convenors (including The Hon Professor George Hampel QC), Honorary Academic Advisor, Professor Stathis Gauntlett and its Greek Committee under Professor Spyros Marketos will ensure a balanced academic, professional, business and cultural program relevant to all professions and callings and consistent with the theme of the Conference.
Keynote speaker – Professor Peter Doherty AC, the 1996 joint-winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine.
Following on from the consideration of ethical issues in Crete and at a time when the concepts of justice and democracy are both developing and suffering, “what makes a just society” will be a challenging issue to discuss in Mykonos.
We aim to bring together current issues of relevance in law, medicine and other professions. Topics will include obligations and rights; access to justice, medicine and education. We will discuss issues in privacy and the right to know, informed consent, developments in the relationships of change (including medical and bioethical changes) and economy and the roles of our institutions.
I encourage you to join us in Mykonos and to be involved in these intellectual challenges, mixed with fun and friendship.
