Canadian & International Politics

March 14, 2017. Edward Corrigan, a well known London-based human rights and immigration/refugee lawyer with a special interest in Middle East affairs, presented and discussed his views on Israel and Palestine and the Middle East issues to the CIC NCB MESG. In reviewing the origin of the seemingly chaotic state of affairs in the Middle East, Mr. Corrigan provided an extensive historical context that began with the economic and political aspirations of the East India Company, followed by several key events that eventually led to the WWI, WWII, the cold war, and the subsequent implementation of the Brzezinski/Carter doctrine..... it was a pleasure to meet with Ed and to learn from his extensive research and knowledge pertaining to the history of the region.

Middle East Study Group - Ottawa Branch

Dear Ed,
I am writing to thank you for accepting to be our invited speaker at MEDG's luncheon/conference on Tuesday March 14, 2017. Your lecture on Apartheid in Palestine was truly remarkable and several guests who attended your conference thanked me for attracting such a prominent lawyer and brilliant speaker as Edward Corrigan from London Ontario to speak on Apartheid in Palestine at this MEDG luncheon/conference in Ottawa. You were admired not only for your mastery of the subject and your eloquence, but also for your selfless dedication to the cause of human rights in Occupied Palestine as well as in other parts of the wold where human rights are trampled.
Thank you again Ed
