RISING Baltimore keynote speaker, Lord John Alderdice

Lord John Alderdice, MB, BCh, is a member of the United Kingdom House of Lords and a University of Maryland School of Medicine clinical professor in psychiatry. His keynote speech, “Building Cohesion in Deeply Divided Societies,” on Oct. 23 will kick off a two-day RISING Baltimore symposium focused on sharing community engagement strategies across communities and professions.

Alderdice has been involved in the Irish peace process for the last 30 years as a political activist, party leader, and negotiator as well as a civil society leader, academic thinker, and analyst. His work challenges deeply held views of the role of law, religion, and culture in community distress and community reconciliation. Alderdice looks forward to returning to Baltimore.

Join us to welcome Lord Alderdice on Monday, Oct. 23, at 5 p.m. in Westminster Hall, Maryland Carey School of Law.

Please register to attend.
