Former Ecuadorian President and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr. Jamil Mahaud will visit Indiana University Southeast to deliver lessons on international relations. Mahaud, the current Co-Founder and Senior Advisor in the International Negotiation Program at Harvard Law School, will speak at IUS, 4201 Grant Line Rd., on Tuesday, March 30.
Mahaud’s keynote presentation, “The Rise of the Left in Latin America,” will be held from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 30, in the Hoosier Room West. This event is free and open to the public.
Mahaud was the President of Ecuador from 1998 to 2000, and with that position he successfully negotiated the historic peace accord that resolved a decades-long border dispute with Peru, resulting in his nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. Prior to his election as President of Ecuador, he served as the Mayor of Quito, a representative to the National Congress, President of the Christian Democratic Party, and Minister of Labor.
