Charles Malik (1906-1987) was a Lebanese diplomat and a dogged advocate of human rights at the United Nations. One of the signatories to the United Nations Universal Declaration on Human Rights (UDHR) in 1948, Malik succeeded Eleanor Roosevelt as chair of the Commission on Human Rights (HRC). Malik was also an academic philosopher who followed the teachings of Alfred North Whitehead and Martin Heidegger and held the chair in philosophy at the American University of Beirut. The presentation will explore the late career of Malik, and his itinerary during the Lebanese Wars of the 1970s and 1980s.
