David Miliband’s job is to anticipate and respond to the world’s worst crises, so his organization—the International Rescue Committee—can figure out how to help people rebuild their lives afterward. How will the various crises in the world play out in 2023, and what can the international community do to mitigate them? What are world leaders doing wrong? And how can populations in need receive proper aid?
Miliband will join FP’s Ravi Agrawal to answer those questions and more. Expect the discussion to cover a broad range of topics, from food insecurity in South Sudan to the human displacement in Ukraine, as well as gang violence and poor sanitation in Haiti and the wreckage from years of war in Syria. Enter the new year better informed—and equipped to help solve—humanity’s biggest problems.
