David Miliband to deliver the 2019 Oxford Fulbright Lecture

On Friday 21 June 2019, David Miliband will deliver the Ninth Annual Oxford Fulbright Distinguished Lecture in International Relations, discussing ‘The New "Arrogance of Power": Global Politics in an Age of Impunity’.

As CEO of the International Rescue Committee, he will use his vantage point to examine one of the major shifts in international relations today, away from checks and balances on the use of power, and towards an Age of Impunity. He will explain how the rules-based international order forged after World War II is being undermined, and suggest how the multilateralist promise embodied by Senator Fulbright can be redeemed.

These annual lectures commemorate former US Senator J. William Fulbright, alumnus of Pembroke College, Oxford and founder of the Fulbright Program, one of the most prestigious international education award programs in the world. DPIR is delighted to co-host this event with Pembroke College, the Fulbright Commission, the Fulbright Association, and the Lois Roth Endowment.

This year’s lecture will take place in the Pichette Auditorium at Pembroke College at 5pm on Friday 21 June, and is free to attend. Places should be reserved through Eventbrite.
