    The Kenner Lecture Series at Lehigh University

    Lehigh University's College of Arts and Sciences will host Mary Robinson, the first woman President of Ireland and more recently United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, as she delivers the 2018 Kenner Lecture on Cultural Understanding, titled "Climate Justice: Why Climate Change is a Threat to Human Rights."

    President Robinson has spent most of her life as a human rights advocate. She now chairs the Council of Women World Leaders and is a member of the Global Commission on International Migration.

    As a teacher, legislator and barrister, she has always sought to use law as an instrument for social change, arguing landmark cases before the European Court of Human Rights as well as in the Irish courts and the European Court in Luxembourg. In 1988 Mary Robinson and her husband, Nicholas Robinson, founded the Irish Centre for European Law at the University of Dublin, and since 1998 she has been Chancellor of the University.

    President Robinson is currently leading the Ethical Globalization Initiative (EGI), supported by a partnership of the Aspen Institute, Columbia University (where she is a professor of practice) and the Swiss based International Council on Human Rights Policy. Its goal is to bring the norms and standards of human rights into the globalization process and to support capacity building in good governance in developing countries. A Council of Goodwill Ambassador, she also serves on the International Commission of Jurists and is Extraordinary Professor at the University of Pretoria, South Africa..

    The Kenner Lecture on Cultural Understanding is an endowed lecture series of The College of Arts & Sciences at Lehigh University established in 1997 by Jeffrey L. Kenner ‘65.
