Event description

Description

Dr. David M. Malone is Rector of the United Nations University and Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations. He is also Chairman for 2017 of the Global Migration Group (GMG), the International Organization inter-agency grouping focusing on migration issues. A diplomat and scholar, Dr. Malone was previously the Canadian High Commissioner to India and concurrently Ambassador to Bhutan and Nepal, and the President of Canada’s International Development Research Centre and the President of the International Peace Academy (now International Peace Institute) in New York. He was previously Canada’s representative to the UN Economic and Social Council and Ambassador to the United Nations. He is currently a Senior Fellow at New York University’s School of Law.

Dr. Malone will be speaking about the challenges and opportunities the United Nations faces in the current context of negotiating inter-state agreements regarding migration. The GMG acts as the lead for 21 international and regional organizations dealing with these issues, and while the difficulties are significant in the current global climate, the incoming UN Secretary-General is an advocate on these issues. This event is co-sponsored by the University of East London’s Centre for Research on Migration, Refugees and Belonging
