Irene Khan: Solving Global Poverty
Economic insecurity is relative: as we in the Northwest worry about layoffs and financial security, more than 1 billion people worldwide are living on less than a dollar a day. Irene Khan, Secretary General of Amnesty International (and the first woman, the first Asian, and the first Muslim to lead the influential human-rights organization), believes such poverty is not just an economic problem, but also a global human-rights violation. Khan's latest book, The Unheard Truth: Poverty and Human Rights, is the centerpiece of Amnesty International's three-year human-rights campaign to end world poverty, and asserts that the best strategy is to empower the poor to take control of their own lives, enabling them to build a sustainable and dignified future for themselves. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Book Store.
