From an editorial published in The Boston Globe Sunday, February 28, 1999

"...[T]he symposium will bring together some extraordinary men and women who have risked their lives and careers in the fight for accountable government and transparent financial systems. "Among the participants will be Wole Soyinka, a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature and an intrepid opponent of Nigeria's corrupt military dictatorship; the fearless and lucid Chinese dissident Wei Jingsheng; Luis Moreno Ocampo, president of Transparency International for Latin America and the Caribbean and a former prosecutor of the Argentine junta. This is a symposium that promises to bring history makers together with students to seek answers for the knottiest problems bedeviling the contemporary world. The event illustrates the possibilities for moral and intellectual relevance at a university." Click here for FULL TEXT of editorial.
