An admirable person to receive Oxford Doctorate!


Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi is to receive an honorary doctorate from Oxford University.

The advanced degree, in civil law, will be presented at the institution's annual Encaenia ceremony, during Ms Suu Kyi's trip to the UK next month. The visit is the first time she has ventured outside Burma since 1988, when she also visited Europe.

Oxford, which referred to Ms Suu Kyi by the honorific name Daw Suu, said that she was awarded the honorary degree by the university in April 1993, but has been unable to receive it in person until now.
