29th Annual Hesburgh Lecture in Ethics and Public Policy

Tuesday, September 13, 2022 4:30 pm EST

Featuring the Honorable Juan Manuel Santos, Former President of Colombia; 2016 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate; Distinguished Policy Fellow, Keough School of Global Affairs

Juan Manuel Santos was the President of Colombia from 2010 to 2018. During his time in office, the historic Colombian Peace Agreement was signed on November 24, 2016, and is celebrated as a major turning point in ending the country’s 52-year armed conflict. The Agreement gives the University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute primary responsibility for technical verification and monitoring of implementation of the accord through the Peace Accords Matrix (PAM) Barometer Initiative.

Santos was the sole recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2016 for ending the longest armed conflict with the oldest guerrilla in the Western Hemisphere. He also received the Lamp of Peace from the Sacred Convent of Assisi in Italy, which honors those working to promote peace and harmony, and the Tipperary International Peace Award in Ireland for his efforts to bring peace to his country and the region.

The annual Hesburgh Lecture in Ethics and Public Policy, established by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies in 1995, honors the Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., president emeritus of Notre Dame, a global champion of peace and justice, and the founder of the Kroc Institute alongside Mrs. Joan B. Kroc. Each year a distinguished scholar, policymaker, and/or peace advocate is invited by the Kroc Institute director to deliver a major lecture on an issue related to ethics and public policy in the context of peace and justice. Join us on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET.
