Rescue: Refugees and the Political Crisis of Our Time
“We can rescue the dignity and hopes of refugees and displaced people. And if we help them, in the process we will rescue our own values.” – David Miliband
Former British Foreign Secretary David Miliband is the president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee, one of the world’s largest refugee aid agencies, providing humanitarian relief to displaced persons in more than 40 war-affected countries. He is a global leader in confronting an unprecedented crisis: 65 million refugees are afflicted by war and famine, from Afghanistan and Myanmar to Syria and Somalia. Miliband’s recent book, Rescue: Refugees and the Political Crisis of Our Time, shows what can be done, not only by governments with the power to change policy but by citizens with the urge to change lives.
