"Contemporary Global Challenges: Where Do We Go From Here?” The Right Hounorable David Cameron, Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (2010-2016) and one of the most prominent global influencers of the early 21st Century, will speak on Monday, March 20th for the Stephen A. Ogden Jr. ‘60 Lecture on International Affairs. Doors will open at 2:30 pm and close at 3:45 pm. Tickets are required and limited. The exact location will be provided at registration. Please register at https://davidcamronogden.eventbrite.com. As the UK’s youngest Prime Minister in two centuries, he came to power at a moment of economic crisis. Under his leadership, the UK’s economy was transformed. The deficit was reduced by over two-thirds; one million businesses set-up; a record number of jobs were created, and Britain became the fastest-growing major advanced economy in the world. Internationally, David Cameron developed a foreign policy in the post-Iraq era that addressed the new challenges of the Arab Spring, as well as a more aggressive Russia, while ensuring Britain played a full role in the global fight against ISIS. Following hosting the successful London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, David Cameron chaired the 2013 G8 Summit at Lough Erne in Northern Ireland, where he highlighted the global need for fair taxes, increased transparency, and open trade. He later helped re-write the global goals on aid and sustainable development. David Cameron will provide an unrivaled perspective on the future of the European Union and Britain’s place in the world following Brexit; and a unique insight into the rise of populist politicians and parties at a time of profound global change.
