AOAV: all our reports

A tribute to Malcolm Harper

malcolm_harperAOAV was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of human rights and peace campaigner Malcolm Harper, who served as a member of our board from 2000 to 2013.

His lifelong, unswerving devotion to “not just peace, but also human rights for all” will be greatly missed.

Mr Harper worked for Oxfam for 18 years, during which time he contributed to projects in East and West Africa and Cambodia.

From 1982-2004 he was the Director of the United Nations Association and has campaigned steadily on the issue of non-violent conflict resolution and on the role which the United Nations could play in its achievement.

He was also a Governor of International Students’ House in London, Chair of the International Broadcasting Trust and its Third World and Environment Broadcasting Project and a member of the Executive Committee of the UK Committee for the UN’s Environment and Development Programs (UNED-UK).

All AOAV staff, as well as the current members of the board, would like to extend their sincerest condolences to Mr Harper’s family and friends.
