Hilary Benn MP: A Keynote Address
We were delighted to welcome Shadow Foreign Secretary Hilary Benn MP to speak on paths to peace in today’s turbulent times.
Mr Benn has vigorously campaigned on issues that create conditions for peace, including demanding stronger UK support for human rights and aid financing. As a longstanding parliamentarian he has been at the forefront of many of the UK’s responses to global challenges, particularly calling for a more comprehensive approach to tackling extremist movements and ideologies. From Gaza to Darfur, Syria to Srebrenica, Mr Benn has advocated powerfully for protecting the world’s most vulnerable conflict-affected people, whilst highlighting the need for more courageous political leadership on the responsibility to protect.
