The Henri P. Habib Distinguished Speakers Series on Peace, Conflict and Global Politics in the 21st Century was created to provide students the opportunity to learn from major political figures.
The Lecture series honours Professor Habib who founded the Department of Political Science in 1961 at Loyola College, one of Concordia’s founding institutions. He was Chair of the Department for sixteen years. Dr. Habib has remained dedicated to his students, encouraging them to learn and think critically about the important issues facing Canadian and international politics. He was promoted to Distinguished Emeritus Professor in 1999.
