Public Lectures

We at Azim Premji University believe that genuine, large-scale social change is possible only through the agency of well-informed, sensitized citizens. The University organizes public lectures by leading scholars, thinkers and leaders in public service on issues related to education, development, livelihood, health care, law, policy and governance. In the past we have had substantive and stimulating lectures by eminent speakers who have ranged from Nobel Memorial Prize and Magsaysay Award winners to grassroots social workers with decades of field experience behind them. The lectures have attracted audiences comprising, students, researchers, social workers and concerned citizens.

Speakers under the ‘ Public Lecture’ series in the past include Joseph Stiglitz, George Soros, Aruna Roy, Robert Wade, Pratap Bhanu Mehta, Yogendra Yadav, Abhay Bang, Andrei Beteille, Arthur Eisenkraft, Harry Brighouse, Harsh Mander and Jahnu Barua.
