Alumni and friends of Warwick attended the inaugural David VandeLinde lecture given by Baroness Amos (BA Sociology 1973-76) in New York City at the beginning of November.

The lecture, entitled 'The Billion Dollar Crises: Making Aid Global in an Evolving World' focuses on the problems encountered today when distributing aid around the world as the number of people in need of international aid keeps growing exponentially. In 2010, the United Nations distributed aid to 42 million people and this year, up to September 2011, 57 million have already been helped.

Baroness Amos, currently the UN Under-Secretary for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Co-ordinator, explores the relationship of governments and the UN and possible ways to refresh the framework that manages international aid.

The David VandeLinde Lecture, named after our Vice-Chancellor Emeritus USA, was held at the offices of BBC Worldwide in New York and was attended by Warwick alumni, US academics, IGGY Commissioners and friends of Warwick.
