Human Rights in Crisis: War, Famine, and Refugees

  • Ida Noyes Hall Library 1212 East 59th Street Chicago, IL, 60637 United States (map)

Join the Institute of Politics and The Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflicts as we welcome David Miliband, President and CEO of the International Rescue Committee (IRC). A former Labour MP in the UK Parliament, Mr. Miliband has served the United Kingdom as both Environment Secretary and Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs. 

Today, with the IRC, Mr. Miliband directs war-relief operations across the globe, as well as refugee resettlement programs throughout the United States. He will draw on his years of foreign policy experience to discuss the Trump administration’s evolving travel ban, the European Union’s refugee resettlement efforts, and the East African famine crisis.

This event is free and open to UChicago students, faculty, staff and the public.
