Tsai Lecture Series

The Tsai Lecture Series, established in 2000 with a generous endowment from Felix Tsai, allows the Asia Center to bring to Harvard notable leaders in academia, government, and business, as well as other professions.  The annual lecture is open to the public, and it offers perspectives from a range of disciplines and from different regions in Asia. Past speakers have included the late Surin Pitsuwan, former Secretary General of ASEAN; Pritzker Prize winning architect and humanitarian, Shigeru Ban; and internationally renowned human rights lawyer and advocate, Asma Jahangir. The Honorable Caroline Kennedy delivered the 14th Tsai Lecture in November 2018.
