The IWM Institute is delighted to announce the launch of its brand new Annual Lecture series which invites world leading figures to address the most pressing conflict-related issues of our time. From the so-called 'refugee crisis' to surveillance and cyberwarfare, the series will shine a spotlight on the challenges we face today and celebrate innovative approaches to tackling ongoing crises.
Our inaugural speaker will be DAVID MILIBAND, former U.K. Foreign Secretary who is now Chief Executive Officer of the International Rescue Committee. He'll be taking a closer look at the global refugee crisis, drawing from the past century of refugee experiences - from Nazi Germany’s persecution of Jews and the Kindertransport, to those fleeing ethnic cleansing in 1990s Bosnia, to the Calais Jungle and the treacherous Mediterranean crossings today.
The talk will be streamed live on 15 March 2021. Please stay tuned for info on ticketing!
Chief Executive Officer of the International Rescue Committee.
