Each year in November, Cleveringa Meetings are organised for Leiden alumni all over the world. From Paris to Singapore and Sydney to New York.
During the Second World War, on 26 November 1940, Professor Cleveringa protested against the dismissal of two Jewish colleagues. Together with the Cleveringa Committees all around the world, LUF yearly organizes a series of Cleveringa meetings around this time to commemorate this famous speech. The lectures are given by Leiden academics in cities throughout the world.
