A Tortoise Digital ThinkIn with David Miliband

Monday 4 May 2020

Duration: 6:30PM – 7:30PM

Status: Completed

Covid-19 is a humanitarian crisis as well as an economic and healthcare one. The virus is a bitter, new blow to the most vulnerable people globally – not least the undocumented, the displaced and those living in detention centres. Can national governments maintain the moral and ethical duty to think about refugees when the crisis at home is all-consuming? What can and must be done, and by whom?

Chair: James Harding, Editor and Co-founder, Tortoise


Our special guest is:

David Miliband is president and chief executive officer of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and former Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs. The IRC is a global humanitarian aid, relief, and development NGO which provides emergency aid and long-term assistance to refugees and those displaced by war, persecution, or natural disaster.
