    Hi Bruce,
    The statements are written by PhD candidate and approved by promoter (professor) beforehand.
    If the committee (8-10 scientists) asks for it during PhD defense (which is about 45min) the PhD candidate should defend/explain these statements. Nowadays it is more like a tradition. They really don't have time for it during defence.  Mostly they ask questions about the content/chapters of your dissertation.

    Interesting, but what are you supposed to do with this statement.  Is
    it your composition or the committee's?
    And what does a defense of it look like?
