Herb Feith’s warmth of personality, his ability to make connections with people across cultures, countries and class, enabled him to build a unique and vast international network of students, friends, fellow-travellers and colleagues.

This network is a living legacy of his dedication to rigorous high-standards of intellectualism, to promoting peace and to his humanitarian ideals. In addition to personal relationships, Herb fostered connections through his support for various international organisations dedicated to his passions – Indonesia, peace studies and conflict resolution.

The Herb Feith Foundation aims to continue to foster relationships with such organisations, including:


Australian Volunteers International
