Mohamed Nasheed - Island President

Thursday, Mar 29, 2012

After years as a political prisoner, Mohamed Nasheed was elected President of the Republic of the Maldives in 2008 in the first democratic election in that Indian Ocean nation's history. Trained as a marine scientist, President Nasheed emerged as one of the leading voices of small island nations threatened by sea level rise and climate change. He was forced out of office in February 2012 in what may have been a coup orchestrated by the repressive forces he defeated in 2008.

President Nasheed is coming to New York for the premier of a film about him, The Island President, which will be showing in theaters across the country.

Sponsors: Columbia Law School Center for Climate Change Law; The Earth Institute of Columbia University; Columbia Climate Center at the Earth Institute; New York League of Conservation Voters; the Environmental & International Environmental Law Committees, NYC Bar Association; Yale Environmental Law Association; Yale Center for Environmental Law & Policy; & Bard MBA in Sustainability.

Date: Thursday, March 29, 6:30 - 8:00 pm

Location: Columbia University, Low Library, 116 Street between Broadway/Amsterdam

RSVP: Columbia Law School The event is open to the public without charge but advance registration is required.
