Peter Conway Memorial Lecture
The second Peter Conway Memorial Lecture was given by Helen Clark, former Administrator of UNDP and Prime Minister of New Zealand to a packed theatre in Wellington this June. Helen’s lecture focussed on the key role of decent work in furthering development for men and women around the world. She drew on her experience at the UNDP to emphasise the important link between decent jobs and building peace and stability in may fragile countries around the world.
This annual lecture is in honour of Peter Conway, trade union leader, economist, internationalist and founding Trustee of UnionAID, who died in 2015.
Peter Conway was also an accomplished musician and an album of his songs has been recorded by band Not the Day Job. The album For Pete’s Sake: The political songs of Peter Conway is available for sale at firstname.lastname@example.org. Half of all proceeds are being donated to UnionAID.
