Edward Mortimer

Senior Program Advisor, Salzburg Global Seminar
CMG, MA, DLitt (Hon)
Distinguished Fellow since 2013
My interests include global governance, human rights, the history and politics of the Middle East, and the management of diversity in contemporary Western societies. In 2014-15 I have been working with The Elders – a group of senior international statesmen and women which seeks to promote the shared interest of humanity – on proposals for strengthening the United Nations, particularly in the area of international peace and security. I also delivered the keynote lecture 'Guests or Comrades? The rights of migrants in the workplace' at the conference on American Multiculturalism in Context held at the Université de Haute-Alsace in Mulhouse (France) in March 2015; and helped to organise a symposium on 'International Responses to Crimes Against Humanity – the Challenge of North Korea' at the Salzburg Global Seminar in June.
