Statement of Support for the Afghan People

08 September 2021

The University of Notre Dame would like to send our thoughts and prayers to students and staff from an Afghan background, as well as members of the Afghan community in Australia, as we witness the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Afghanistan.  We are acutely aware of the impact that these events may pose for vulnerable Afghans, including the friends and family members of individuals in our community.

As members of the international community, we recognise our collective responsibility to protect the human rights of people in Afghanistan. We support humanitarian aid organisations assisting Afghanistan. We call for respect for the civil rights of all Afghans, especially women and children.
