2012 Havel Prize Acceptance Speech

In a video message, Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi accepts the inaugural Václav Havel Prize for Creative Dissent at the Oslo Freedom Forum. Reflecting on the legacy of Havel, Suu Kyi express her gratitude for the hope that Havel gave to the Burmese democracy movement and the example that he set. Without men and women like Havel, Suu Kyi explains, the world would be a less happy and less vibrant place, with a lesser understanding of how to confront the challenges of humanity.
