Legacy Lectures, 2019

The ninth annual Fulbright Legacy Lectures were given by David Miliband, President and CEO of the International Rescue Committee. He spoke at the University of Edinburgh, King’s College London and Pembroke College, University of Oxford, from June 19-21, 2019.

In his lecture titled “The New Arrogance of Power: Global Politics in an Age of Impunity,” Mr. Miliband examined the shift today in international relations away from checks and balances on the use of power, and towards an age of impunity. His explanation of how the rules-based international order forged after World War II is being undermined serves as an urgent call to preserve the rule of law and protect the most vulnerable. A video of the lecture delivered at Pembroke College, University of Oxford, is available on their website.
