The National University of Ireland (NUI) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) have pleasure in welcoming you this evening to the 2015 Edward Phelan Lecture. NUI and ILO first collaborated in 2013 to establish this lecture series. Both organisations feel greatly honoured that President Michael D. Higgins has agreed to give the second Phelan Lecture as part of The President of Ireland’s Ethics Initiative on 26 February at 6:30 pm (Dublin/GMT time). There will be a response from Guy Ryder, Director-General of the ILO. Enjoy the lecture.
