In February 2013 the Oxford Martin Programme on Human Rights for Future Generations, in association with the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict (ELAC), welcomed  Helen Clark to Merton College, Oxford for a seminar on the topic of  "Development and Conflict".

If you missed the seminar you can watch a webcast on the Oxford Martin School's website. Helen Clark is introduced by Professor Sandra Fredman, Co-Director, Oxford Martin Programme on Human Rights for Future Generations.

Helen Clark became the Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme in April 2009, and is the first woman to lead the organization. She is also the Chair of the United Nations Development Group, a committee consisting of the heads of all UN funds, programmes and departments working on development issues. Prior to her appointment with UNDP, Helen Clark served for nine years as Prime Minister of New Zealand, serving three successive terms from 1999 - 2008. Throughout her tenure as Prime Minister, Helen Clark engaged widely in policy development and advocacy across the international, economic, social and cultural spheres.
