Before she was the United Nations' High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary Robinson was President of Ireland. And this week, she'll be awarded a major ethics prize from Case Western Reserve University. Despite accolades like that and her recent Presidential Medal of Freedom, Robinson has come in for some criticism: Some Jewish leaders and others claim her stances have stoked anti-Semitism worldwide. Wednesday morning at 9, we'll talk with Robinson about her life, her critics, ethical leadership and our shared role in the fight for human rights.

As a former leader of Ireland, and a person with a broad world view, I’d apprecaite hearing Ms. Robinson’s views on the connection between access to healthcare and human rights.
In an unrelated question, I wonder if Ms. Robinson has had any connection with Henry T. King, recently deceased leader of the Case Canada-US law institute.
Thanks for interviewing Mary Robinson - after hearing the show, I went to the 3 PM panel at Case, so that I could see her in person.
