Permanent Jordanian Ambassador to the United Nations will Speak to One World
We are pleased to announce that His Royal Highness Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein has agreed to speak to the monthly chapter meeting of One World on September 14, at 7:00.
Prince Zeid is Jordan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, a post he held previously for six and a half years from 2000-2007. From 2007-2010 he was Jordan’s Ambassador to the United States of America. He also served as Jordan’s Deputy Permanent Representative at the UN, with the rank of Ambassador, from 1996-2000.
Prince Zeid is currently Chairman of the Country-Specific Configuration (of the UN Peace Building Commission) for Liberia. He also chairs the search committee for the selection of the next prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, and is Jordan’s “Sherpa” on Nuclear Security. He was educated at Reed’s School, Surrey before gaining a B.A. in 1987 from Johns Hopkins University, where he was an important member of the University’s rugby club. He received a Ph.D. from Christ’s College, Cambridge in 1993. We look forward to Prince Zeid’s visit and, if you would like to prepare for his talk, the One World Book Club enjoyed reading Our Last Best Chance by King Abdullah II.
