Bernard Brodie Distinguished Lecture: SENATOR GEORGE MITCHELL
Thursday, March 1, 2012
About the Speaker: In 2009, President Obama appointed Sen. Mitchell as Special Envoy for the Middle East, a post he held for more than 2 years. At the request of President Clinton, Prime Minister Barak, and Chairman Arafat, Senator Mitchell served as chairman of an International Fact Finding Committee on violence in the Middle East. The committee's recommendation, widely known as The Mitchell Report, was endorsed by the Bush administration, the European Union, and by many other governments. Senator Mitchell also served as chairman of the Peace Negotiations in Northern Ireland. Under his leadership, the governments of Ireland and the United Kingdom and the political parties of Northern Ireland agreed to the historic Good Friday peace accord.
