The World Affairs Council of Greater Hampton Roads will host two programs June 2 and June 9 as part of a new series titled "Global Issues for Future Generations." Old Dominion University is a lead sponsor of the World Affairs Council of Greater Hampton Roads.

The June 2 program, titled "Is International Law Important to U.S. Foreign Policy?", will be presented by Margaret McGuinness from the University of Missouri School of Law. A former Foreign Service officer, McGuinness will discuss several issues that have emerged in recent years, including the treatment of detainees and the International Court of Justice.

Dr. Edward Oldfield from Eastern Virginia Medical School will lead the June 9 presentation, titled "Emerging Infectious Diseases: Of Mice and Men." Oldfield will discuss the global impact of recent outbreaks and provide expert insight into future health strategies to control transmissions.

Both programs will be held in the MacArthur Memorial Theatre in downtown Norfolk. Admission is free for students and others are asked to voluntarily contribute to the Student Fund.
