Michael Milken, Chairman, Milken Institute
Tony Blair, Former Prime Minister, Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Institute Chairman Mike Milken sits down with Tony Blair to discuss a wide range of issues including global politics, international economics and energy as well as more personal reflections on leadership, faith and philanthropy. Blair, who served as prime minister of the United Kingdom from 1997 to 2007, now represents the Quartet - the United Nations, the European Union, the United States and Russia - in helping mediate Middle East peace negotiations. In addition to addressing the Middle East, the euro zone and other pressing geopolitical topics, this free-flowing discussion will explore the global race for human capital; the shifting natural-resource landscape; the roles of religion and culture in national development; the future of education; and Blair's philanthropic efforts, including the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, created to promote respect and understanding among religions, and the Africa Governance Initiative, which will be a major focus of Wednesday's Africa panel.
