Mary Robinson, 2009 Inamori Ethics Prize Recipient


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.Mary Robinson former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
