Phi Beta Delta Presents Speaker on International Law and Ethics
Ohio Northern University’s Phi Beta Delta honorary society for international scholars presents a lecture by Fran Quigley in the McIntosh Ballroom on Thursday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m.
The title of Quigley’s lecture is “International Law and Ethics in America’s ‘War on Terror’: Torture, Rendition and the Predator Program.”
Quigley is the former executive director of the Indiana chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. He is also a journalist, author, former public defender, civil right attorney and visiting professor at the Indiana University School of Law. He currently publishes a column twice a month in The Indianapolis Star and other publications. His recent book, “Walking Together, Walking Far,” chronicles the U.S. and Kenyan medical school partnership, AMPATH, which has become one of the world’s most comprehensive and successful responses to the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
Phi Beta Delta is the honor society for international scholars. Founded in 1987, the nominees for membership in the Gamma Upsilon chapter of Phi Beta Delta include outstanding faculty, staff, students and alumni. The society hopes to integrate those who possess a deep commitment to international affairs, education and research. One of the functions of the Gamma Upsilon chapter has been to create a regular forum in which international affairs can be discussed using University sources and by seeking prominent individuals with varied experience in international affairs recruited from beyond the University community.
