Spokeswoman of the Free Democratic Party, the Honorable Marina Schuster, will speak at the University of La Verne’s 2013 Benazir Bhutto & Ahmed Ispahani International Lectureship event on May 1, 2013.

“Human Rights and International Justice: A Common U.S. – European Agenda?” is part of the annual international lectureship established by La Verne Board of Trustees Member Paul Moseley and his wife Jeanne, and will be presented by the University of La Verne International Studies Institute.

Schuster, who has been a member of the German Bundestag since 2005, is a leading figure of foreign policy and human rights in Germany. She currently sits on the boards of the United Nations Association of Germany, the German Africa Foundation, the German Foundation for Peace Research, the German Institute for Development Evaluation and the Hirschfeld Eddy Foundation for LGBT Rights.

In addition, she is a member of the Young Leaders Programs of both the American Council on Germany and the Atlantik-Brücke, which are two prestigious nonpartisan associations with the goal of building a bridge between Germany and the United States.

Throughout her time in Parliament, Schuster has worked across party lines to help build support for the peace process in Sudan, refugee relief in Syria and for other causes.
