      EVENT DETAILS
      Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein: “Global Challenges to Human Rights Today.”

      Throughout his career, Prince Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein of Jordan has been an advocate for human rights and peace initiatives. His belief that “the safety of humanity will only be secured through vision, energy and generosity of spirit; through activism; through the struggle for greater freedom, in equality; and through justice,” has compelled him to engage in, and to lead the cause of humanitarian work including involvement in international criminal justice, UN peacekeeping, post-conflict peace-building, counter nuclear terrorism, and his pledge as an international gender champion.

      In his final address as out-going United Nations Human Rights Ambassador, al-Hussein shared his concern that the threat to global stability created by increasing nationalism poses great danger to democracy, and he advocated for world powers to fight against factions whose mission is to undermine civil liberties.
